Statement - Reduction in Domiciliary Care


Belfast Trust recently wrote to a number of people who are in receipt of a domiciliary care package to advise them that from January 2015 we would temporarily cease some elements of this care.

This was a decision we took with great reluctance and it was based solely on our need to live within the resources available to us in the current financial year. Since the announcement was made there has been many representations made to Belfast Trust from individuals, families and others, all concerned about our decision. As a result, we have decided not to proceed with these changes at this time.

We regret any distress or anxiety we may have caused. We will contact all those who have been advised of the reduction to their care packages, and assure them these changes will not come into effect from January 2015 as indicated.
