On Tuesday 19 June 2018 I met with national and local HSE representatives (from Waterford and Wexford) to discuss the current situation with regards to CAMHS services in the South East region.  They have provided me with a report with regard to the issues arising in that area and the steps being taken to ensure ongoing delivery of services in the South East. I have arranged a further meeting with these officials to take place in early July to report on progress.

I will also be responding to statements in the Seanad this evening on this matter to provide an outline of the situation to the members.
