RECENT WEEKS HAVE seen two disability services organisations being told that they will have their budgets cut by the HSE.

Today, it emerged that the HSE is to cut €189,461 from Sunbeam House’s budget. This will result in the withdrawal of transport services for clients.

Meanwhile, St Michael’s House, another disability services organisation, will see €1 million cut from its budget by the HSE.

Under the Haddington Road agreement, the HSE has committed to reducing costs nationally.

Today, we ask: Should disability services be exempt from HSE cuts?


Poll Results:
