“Sinn Féin has been  lobbied by staff members and trade unionists about the decision to move some staff members from weekly and fortnightly payments and met with the Health Minister to discuss the matter.

“The simple reality is some staff members cannot afford to manage their money on a monthly basis as they do not earn enough.

“I am delighted the Minister has listened to the concerns of the workers and that she has agreed not to implement the change.
