29 August, 2018 - by Colm Gildernew


Sinn Féin MLA Colm Gildernew has said standards of care for some of the most vulnerable in society must be met. 

Speaking after meeting with RQIA today, the party’s Carers spokesperson said:

“Sinn Féin continue to meet with all the relevant authorities in social care following the concerns about care in Dunmurry Manor and Muckamore Abbey. 

“It’s important that care standards are met and that any learnings from past failings are implemented as soon as possible to ensure this never happens again. 

“I recently met the Safeguarding Board on their role in maintaining standards in social care for some of the most vulnerable people in our society. 

“At today’s meeting, I pressed the RQIA on the need for a robust response to the ‘Home Truths’ report by the Commissioner for Older People.”
