CARE CENTRES WARNED BY HIQA TO STEP UP THEIR EFFORTS

HIQA’s released a review of the regulation of health and social care in Ireland which raises concerns for a number of areas.

They include a claim that some services are still not taking the issue of Garda vetting seriously enough.

Director of Regulation at HIQA Mary Dunnion says it’s an important tool for safeguarding people.
