Simpson meeting on crisis in care sector

Upper Bann MP David Simpson has met with the Chief Executive of the Independent Health & Care Providers, Pauline Shepherd to discuss the “looming crisis” in the care sector.

Speaking after the meeting David Simpson said: “It has been widely reported that care providers are facing tough economic decisions. The cost of good quality care is increasing however Government investment in this sector does not mirror these costs.

“I am once again reaching out to the Department of Health and ask that they make further investment a priority and remove uncertainty of further closures.”
