Single HSSA proposal to be reviewed..

The BBC’s Dot Kirby is reporting that, in a memo, the Health Minister Michael McGimpsey has told NHS staff that the RPA proposal for a single regional Health and Social Services Authority, expected to replace the 4 existing Boards in April 2008, is to be reviewed – a Chief Executive Designate has already been appointed and legislation was due in November this year. Perhaps the Health Minister will eventually get around to making an official statement on the matter.. and has he told the Assembly’s Health Committee? How about some more consultation too? In the meantime you can watch the short Newsline discussion here [RealPlayer file]
