Sinn Féin Senator Niall Ó Donnghaile has extended an invitation to the Minister for Health in the North Michelle O’Neill to address Seanad Éireann.

Niall Ó Donnghaile was speaking after the health and social care sector in the North welcomed the Sinn Féin Health Minister’s report on transforming the health service ‘Health and Wellbeing 2026 – Delivering Together’.

Senator Ó Donnghaile said:

“Sinn Féin believes healthcare must be developed on an all-Ireland basis. 

The Health Minister Michelle Ó Neill has launched a visionary plan aimed at transforming healthcare in the north and highlighting the importance of health care free at the point of delivery.  

“One of the key issues Minister O’Neill has been working on with Minister Harris has been greater harmonisation and co-operation on health services on an all-Ireland basis.

“We have all seen the benefits of cross-border working.

“As such I have extended an invitation to the north’s Health Minister to address the Seanad on her report in making a 20th Century health service fit for purpose in the 21st Century delivering for patients and staff alike.”
