Sligo County Council are to call on the Minister for Health and the HSE to respond to a request for a staffing review at Cregg House.
The request has been considered a matter of urgency concerning staffing levels at the residential centre which were recently highlighted by the INMO (Irish Nurses and Midwives Association) who held a lunchtime protest outside the facility.
“It is now a matter of public knowledge that the Intellectual Disability Services facility at Cregg House is severly understaffed”, said Cllr Declan Bree, who put the motion forward at Monday’s County Council meeting.
‘‘As far back as June of last year HIQA asked for an urgent review of staffing levels in Cregg House. However to date the management has failed to comply with the request.”
