Progress on chiropody backlog

Progress in dealing with a backlog for chiropody services was welcomed this week by Deputy Frank Feighan. The lack of chiropody services was recently highlighted by Deputy Feighan. Following this, he was informed by Michael Tobin of HSE West that a number of clerical staff have been appointed and patients are now being authorised for chiropody treatment. Deputy Feighan has welcomed the progress and thanked all involved in ensuring this problem was dealt with in an efficient and satisfactory manner.
