Free Event. Happy Birthday NHS? What is the future of health and social care? – Tuesday 19th June 2018.

This year the NHS turns 70 and the health service in Northern Ireland is under immense pressure. Already health takes over 50% of all Stormont expenditure and that figure is growing all the time. With an ageing population as well as the increase in conditions like obesity, diabetes and dementia, the demands keep growing.

Join our expert panel for a debate on the future of Health in Northern Ireland. The panel includes:

  • Dr George O’Neill – local GP and well know health commentator
  • Sean Holland – Chief Social Worker, Department of Health
  • Charlotte McArdle – Chief Nursing Officer, Department of Health
  • John-Patrick Clayton – Unison

Your host for the evening will be Alan Meban.

Date and time: Tuesday the 19th of June, 7:15pm9pm,
Venue: The Dark Horse Bar (This venue is wheelchair friendly)

This event is free but please do book tickets so we can plan numbers.
