WEXFORD DOWN 31 MENTAL HEALTH BEDS SINCE CLOSURE OF ST SENAN’S

No money from the sale of Saint Senan’s Hospital in Enniscorthy is being pumped back into mental health services in County Wexford.

That’s according to Fianna Fail Deputy James Brown who says the county is now very disadvantaged in terms of metal health services.

Before the closure of the hospital, there were 75 acute beds for patients in Wexford and Waterford whereas there is only 44 in the area.

He says he’s going to round up other representatives in the county and demand that more support is given to mental health patients in Wexford.
