Nurse views sought on Northern Ireland plans

  • Comment
Nurses have been urged to give their views on a radical reorganisation of the health service in Northern Ireland by the country’s chief nursing officer Martin Bradley.

The reorganisation was announced last week by NI health minister Michael McGimpsey, who wants to streamline NHS structures.

Proposals include replacing the four health and social services boards with one regional health and social care board. Trust structures set up in April last year will remain unchanged.

'There will be a consultation paper produced which will give more details on these proposals in a few weeks and at that time nurses need to consider carefully the role they will play within commissioning and public health,' Mr Bradley told NT.
