Published: 12 December, 2017

Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Carers and Wellbeing Colm Gildernew has welcomed the publication of a major report into improving adult social care here.

The Fermanagh South Tyrone MLA was speaking after an expert advisory panel established by then Minister Michelle O'Neill unveiled its recommendations today.

He commented:

"The panel report represents a major step forward in the transformation of adult social care begun by Michelle O'Neill and I would like to thank the panel members for their work.

"Obviously each of their 16 recommendations need to be assessed in great detail but today's report moves the whole conversation forward.

"Sinn Féin will now be engaging with health providers and service users to ensure this important work continues to move forward as part of the overall transformation agenda which is essential within our health and social care system." ENDS/CRIOCH
