Sheehan seeks urgent meeting over patient recall

1 May, 2018 - by Pat Sheehan


Sinn Féin spokesperson for Health Pat Sheehan has requested an urgent meeting with the head of the Belfast Trust regarding the recall of 2,500 patients.

Speaking after the Belfast Trust announced concerns about the care provided by Consultant Neurologist Dr Michael Watt, Pat Sheehan commented: “The health and wellbeing of affected patients must be the priority of the Trust's response.

"It is vital the 2,500 patients concerned receive their review as a matter of urgency and are provided with any care or support they require.

"This will be a stressful and worrying time for the patients concerned and it's important they are kept fully informed.

"The Belfast Trust must ensure their response is prompt and sensitive to the needs of patients.

"I have requested a meeting with the Chief Executive of the Belfast Trust to ensure that the wellbeing of patients is prioritised."
