The HSE is currently undertaking a waiting list initiative in areas where waiting times for drug treatment have been unacceptably long, Irish Medical Times has learned.

“A review of the causes of these excessive waiting times is being undertaken and recommendations will be made,” a spokesperson for the ICGP told IMT.

“GPs in the community will have a role to play and will be encouraged to manage their own stabilised methadone patients.”
