Gildernew calls for support for those with long COVID

Sinn Féin MLA Colm Gildernew has called on the Health Minister to make sure services are in place to support those dealing with long COVID. 

Colm Gildernew said: 

“I have been raising this issue with the Department for some time.

“We are now learning more about the impact of long COVID on many people who have dealing with its debilitating impact for months.

“The impact of COVID to date has been little understood and we need to see more research and help for those dealing with it. 

“The health minister needs to make sure there are services in place to support those dealing with long COVID as a matter of urgency.”

Teachers deserve a fair pay deal that reflects their incredible work and commitment to our young people.

@ChrisHazzardSF joined with a delegation of teachers from the North to hand in a letter to the British Prime Minister calling for an immediate pay deal for workers.

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
