Health Campaigners To Attend Stormont Debate on Downe A&E
A group of local hospital campaigners will travel to Stormont late on the afternoon of Tuesday 14 January 2014 in order to attend the adjournment debate arranged by Mr Sean Rogers MLA in support of the retention of 24 hour accident and emergency at the Downe, a service which has been “temporarily” reduced since 4 January.
Local MLA’s of all parties are expected to speak passionately on the matter. Health is a “devolved” matter. It is a responsibility of the NI Assembly and the Executive.
