Sinn Féin back call for inclusion of Dentists in Local Commissioning Groups

21 April, 2008


Sinn Féin Health Spokesperson, North Belfast MLA Carál Ní Chuilín has welcomed and endorsed the call from the Dental Association for the inclusion of Dentists on Local Commissioning Groups.

Ms Ní Chuilín said:

"I fully endorse the call from the Dental Association for the inclusion of Dentists on the Local Commissioning Groups as part of Health Minister Michael McGimpsey's reform of Health and Social Care services.

"We have all handled cases for constituents who have been unable to access NHS Dental care. I believe that the inclusion of Dentists on these Commissioning Groups will assist in addressing the shortage of National Health Service dentists in particular areas and deliver a better service to patients."
