26 October, 2016 - by Catherine Seeley


Sinn Féin MLA Catherine Seeley has welcomed the announcement from GPs that they will not resign from health trusts. 

The Sinn Féin Health spokesperson said; 

"I welcome today's announcement from GPs in the North that they have frozen their threat to resign from health trusts and go private. 

"This move follows the publication by my party colleague and health minister Michelle O'Neill of a radical ten-year plan to improve the health and social care service. 

"The plans include increased support for doctors, including the provision of more GPs and nurses and wider support teams. 

"GPs have indicated that they want change and have reacted positively to the health minister's vision for the future of the health service. 

"There is a role for everyone in the health service, and GPs in particular, to work together with the health minister in the time ahead to improve the health and social care system for the benefit of patients and staff."
