McLaughlin Welcomes Health Board Ethnic Minorities Initiative

18 March, 2007

South Antrim Sinn Féin MLA, Mitchel McLaughlin has welcomed the production of an information booklet in seven languages by the NHSSB that will assist ethnic minorities to access health care.

Mitchel McLaughlin said:

"I welcome this initiative by the NHSSB. It will help ethnic minorities to understand the process of registering with a local GP and accessing all the proper health care services provided by the NHS.

"The interpreting services, both personal and telephone will be invaluable for the medical personnel dealing as well as the patients themselves." ENDS
