Kimmins calls for Health Minister to urgently meet with NI Children’s Hospice

Sinn Féin MLA Liz Kimmins has called on the health minister to urgently meet with the NI Children’s Hospice following the announcement they are to reduce bed capacity due to a loss of government funding. 

The Newry and Armagh MLA said:

“News that NI Children’s Hospice is to cut its bed capacity due to a lack of government funding is a worrying development. 

“I would urge the health minister to urgently meet with the hospice to consider ways the department can support this vital service which is a lifeline for families in their time of need.

“I will also be writing to the Acting Director to request a meeting and to offer my party’s full support.

“We must do all that we can to protect vital services for families and children, and to ensure we see no reduction in capacity.”
