A Galway Councillor has questioned the HSE on why agency staff are being used for clerical work, if there is a panel already there of people who are qualified for the job.

Fianna Fail Cllr Mary Hoade raised the matter at the recent HSE Regional Health Forum meeting.

She said she was aware of instances where agency staff are being used in clerical and admin positions but was informed by HSE management that this was generally down to a situation where the contract on offer was short term or was turned down by someone on the panel.

Cllr Hoade says she is concerned about the cost of agency staff to the HSE, especially where there is a panel in operation.
