Alliance calls for creation of cross party group on health reform

Alliance MLA Trevor Lunn has today in the Budget debate in the Assembly called for the establishment of a cross-party working group to address reform of the health service in Northern Ireland.

Lagan Valley Alliance MLA Trevor Lunn said: “Today in the Assembly Budget debate Alliance has called for the creation of a cross-party working group to discuss and agree major reforms in our health service.

“Almost every speaker in the Budget debate has emphasised the critical importance of the health service to the people of Northern Ireland and we believe it deserves special attention, probably at the level of an Executive sub-committee.

“It is vitally important that we protect all our frontline health services. We also need to reform the health service to ensure increased value for money to help protect key services.”
