Dáil Éireann Debate
59. Mr. B. O'Keeffe asked the Minister for Health the reason the Sexually Transmitted Disease temporary consultant's post has not been advertised; and if he intends to provide funding for ancillary staff and equipment. [1276/96]
On foot of a number of recommendations and reports concerning the care and management of HIV and AIDS patients in the Southern Health Board area, the Department has agreed to sanction the appointment of a consultant to act as co-ordinator for these services in the area. Funding for the consultant and for support staff has been put in place.
The Southern Health Board will shortly submit an application to Comhairle na n-Ospidéal to have the consultant post filled on a permanent basis. The delay in submitting this application arose from consideration of various proposals as to the structure of the post.
