Sinn Féin committed to transforming stroke services - Sheehan
Speaking today after Sinn Féin submitted its response to the pre-consultation on stroke services, spokesperson for Health Pat Sheehan MLA said:
"Today we submitted our response to the pre-consultation on improving stroke services.
"Sinn Féin is committed to transforming stroke services to achieve the best health outcomes for people, in line with Michelle O'Neill's plan for transformation.
"Improving stroke services must mean delivering better outcomes for all those who need stroke care across the north.
"It must be based on meeting fully the needs of stroke sufferers and those susceptible to stroke, and ensure that improved services are accessible in a time critical manner, to the whole community.
"The contributions from the public, whether made verbally at public meetings or through formal written submissions, must be carefully considered by the Department of Health and the HSC.
"Real and effective transformation of stroke services can only be achieved by designing those services in partnership with the people who use and deliver them."
