Midlands Prison Inmates Waiting 40 Days For Psychological Services

That's a significant drop on figures from 2022.

Inmates at the Midlands Prison are waiting nearly a month and a half on average to access psychological services.

Figures released by the Justice Minister show the average wait time in 2023 was 41.1 days, among the longest in the country.

However, that's a significant drop when compared to the year prior, when inmates were waiting as long as four months.

Inmates at Portlaoise Prison experience the shortest wait time in Ireland, with an average period of five days, which is also a significant reduction on 2022's figures of nearly six months.
