NILGA CONSULTATION RESPONSE - REVIEW OF HEALTH & SOCIAL CARE IN NI, “TRANSFORMING YOUR CARE”.

16 January 2013

NILGA values the opportunity to engage with the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety in the consultation process on the ‘Transforming Your Care’ Review. NILGA strongly agrees with the Review team in its assertion that it is not supportive of any move away from core NHS principles, but would also agree that the demographics of our population is changing, necessitating a plan for change. NILGA would support the assertion that to fail to plan for this change would be detrimental to the health and well-being of the population. The above comments notwithstanding, there are a number of key, strategic concerns that NILGA must highlight in our response.
