It depends a lot on the size of the influx.

Compared to the original population, if it is small, then we can just intensify the existing service.

If it is relatively big, we should consider expanding the service.

However if it is very big, say the same size as the original population, it will not be possible to double the number of psychiatrists. I will consider integrating the asylum seekers into the service, recruiting some of them.
