Ní Chuilín welcomes investigation by senior police into Michael Watt

Sinn Féin MLA Carál Ní Chuilín has welcomed news that senior PSNI officers are opening an investigation into Dr Michael Watt who was struck off the medical register over his clinical practices. 

Carál Ní Chuilín said:  

“The patients and families affected by the neurology scandal deserve openness, transparency and justice. The opening of a major police investigation by senior officers into the clinical practice of Michael Watt is a step in the right direction to achieve that.

“Patients and families were subjected to years of distress due to misdiagnosis and mistreatments, they deserve to get to the full truth and it must never happen again.  

“I urge former patients of Michael Watt who have concerns about their medical treatment to come forward to the police. 

“The PSNI has set up a dedicated 24-7 online reporting platform on the PSNI  website for any former patient or family member to report their concerns about their medical treatment by Michael Watt to the police.

“Sinn Féin will continue to work with and support the families to get full disclosure, truth and justice.”
