There is a 97 week waiting period for treatment for Mayo Early Intervention Occupational Therapy services.
That’s according to Mayo Fianna Fail TD Dara Calleary who got a response from the HSE.
The HSE confirmed to deputy Calleary that permission has been given to fill an OT position in the county which has been vacant since September.
However, he says it will be some time in 2018 before that position will be filled.
Deputy Calleary says he cannot comprehend why it is taking so long to fill this vacancy.
