‘Deep concern at Muckamore claims’ - Sheehan
Sinn Féin Health spokesperson Pat Sheehan has expressed deep concern following allegations of ill-treatment of patients at Muckamore Abbey Hospital in Antrim.
The West Belfast MLA was speaking after four staff members were suspended from Muckamore while police investigate the claims.
“We are deeply concerned about the allegations of ill-treatment of patients within Muckamore Abbey,” he commented.
“If any ill treatment of vulnerable patients is found to have taken place, that cannot be tolerated.
“The safety and welfare of patients must be central to health provision and so it is important that these allegations are thoroughly investigated.”
