New Executive must prioritise women’s health – Dillon

Sinn Féin MLA Linda Dillon has described waiting times for gynaecological treatments as ‘completely unacceptable’.

The party’s health spokesperson said:

“It is completely unacceptable that women are waiting too long for NHS gynaecological treatment, and in some cases, being forced to have avoidable surgery as a result of these delays.

“Delays in gynaecology care impacts on the quality of life of those women waiting for treatment, in some cases impacting their ability to work or have the potential to have children of their own.

“This review once again highlights the need for a women’s health strategy to be prioritised and implemented by a new Health Minister. 

“We need a Health Minister who is ambitious about ensuring better health services for women and begins to tackle the real issues facing our health service.”
