The HSE is committed to establishing a review of the eligibility criteria applied in the case of the recruitment of Psychologists. The terms of reference for this review have been finalised and the HSE is in the process of establishing the review group which will be independently chaired and will be tasked with ensuring full consideration of the views of all appropriate stakeholder representative bodies. It is hoped the review will be initiated in the coming weeks.
