Clossure of Old Peoples Homes

Will the Health Minister intervene in the proposals to closures older people’s homes within the Southern Health and Social Care Trust areas?

Danny Kennedy says this will be an important issue for the Health Minister to consider. He stated that a major review and consultation process is currently being undertaken and hoped that all local representatives and local public took the opportunity to make representations in support of these facilities. He also said that the Health Minister has given an undertaking to the Assembly that he will look closely at the decisions reached by the various Trusts in charge of these decisions.

Alliance’s Trevor Lunn spoke of his sympathy for the Health Minister and said that he assumed the Minister would be reluctant to overrule the decision of the Health Trust.
