HSE to cut Mayo community services in bid to save €2.5 million

The HSE is to cut over €2.5 million in funding for a wide range of community services in Mayo as it attempts to balance its books. In a document passed on to the Mayo Advertiser by Independent Castlebar Town Councillor Michael Kilcoyne the HSE outlines the areas it aims to cut funding for and the impacts it expects to occur as a result of them. The cuts in funding will be widespread and varied with the HSE expecting to save €375,000 by transferring patients who may be in private nursing homes paid for by a subvention from the HSE back to public facilities, which could choke up the current public facilities. It also intends to cut €46,000 from a teenage health initiative which the HSE admits may impact on sexual activity of those under 18 years of age.
