No one should be at risk while receiving much needed care- Gildernew

Sinn Féin MLA Colm Gildernew has said it is unacceptable that anyone should be at risk while receiving much needed care.

The Fermanagh and South Tyrone MLA said:

”I am shocked to hear of failures at yet another setting which have put vulnerable people with learning disabilities at risk.

”I have previously challenged the Western Trust about the safety and quality of care of patients in the Lakeview Disability Hospital so I am extremely disappointed that these concerns were not acted upon sooner.

”It is unacceptable that anyone should be at risk while receiving much needed care and I welcome a decision by the regulator to issue improvement notices to this particular setting.

”The Western Trust must provide assurances that those within their care are safe and that they will receive the highest quality of care going forward.”

The third and final day of a fantastic Ploughing. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Sinn Féin tent for a chat over the last few day.

Sinn Féin in Government would stand up and ensure a future for our family farmers and deliver a fair deal for rural Ireland.


It was totally irresponsible for the Minister for Health to travel abroad possibly knowing the scandal at Temple Street Children’s Hospital was going to break.

This scandal raises serious questions around transparency, discipline, oversight & clinical governance. @davidcullinane
