‘Stroke and breast consultation extension welcome’ –Duffy

Sinn Féin Health spokesperson Councillor Sandra Duffy has welcomed moves by the Department of Health to extend the consultation on proposals to reshape stroke and breast assessment services to  August 2nd.

She said:

“I welcome that the Department of Health have now extended the public consultation on proposals to reshape stroke and breast assessment services to August 2nd.

“From the start, we have challenged the department to provide the public with the relevant information in terms of its processes and the evidence base for its proposals.

“Transformation of health and social care is needed if we are to achieve better health outcomes – but changes to services must be done in partnership with staff, service users and communities.

“Sinn Féin will continue to seek answers on the proposals and would encourage members of the public to attend upcoming public engagements.”
