Sinn Féin MLA Sue Ramsey said it is important that people make their views heard regarding the Transforming Your Care strategy, which has been put out for consultation today.
The West Belfast MLA and Chair of the Assembly’s Health Committee said:
“It is important that people contribute their views to the consultation on this strategy. I made a point of stressing to the Minister today that people need reassured that this is not privatisation through the back door.
“Whatever changes come through this strategy the fundamental principle of the health service, healthcare free at the point of delivery, can not be altered.
“I would especially encourage patients, healthcare workers and all stake holders to make their views heard on this consultation.”
