14/10/2014

Health Minister Jim Wells today announced a new model of cooperation which would deliver safe and effective cardiac care to children in Northern Ireland.

Belfast Trust welcomes the certainty this Report gives. Our patients and their families remain our number one priority and we are pleased they will continue to have access to safe and high-quality care in a more sustainable arrangement. Going forward, it is our intention to work with our Commissioners and the Department of Health to ensure a safe transition to the all-island model and to maintain agreed interim arrangements.
