SDLP Upper Bann MLA Dolores Kelly has said the recall of urology patients in the Southern Health Trust following ‘clinical concerns’ about the work of a consultant demands urgent answers from the Department of Health.
Dolores Kelly MLA said:
“News that a number of urology patients are set to be recalled in the Southern Trust area following a high level investigation over the summer are deeply concerning for those who have received treatment and their families.
“The Southern Trust and the Department of Health need to act quickly to provide reassurance and support to those affected. We also need to be assured that there is adequate capacity within urology, following the loss of this consultant, to ensure that new patients are receiving treatment quickly.
“Urgent answers are needed for patients and the public. I will be pressing the Minister to provide these as soon as possible.”
