NI hospitals' shake-up plans9th June 2011
Health minister Edwin Poots is to set out proposals for the future of Northern Ireland’s hospitals.
He told the Stormont health committee that compared to England, money was being spread too thinly across too many acute sites amid suggestions that some units may close. He did not name any hospital, but it is understood that the future of the Mater Hospital's accident and emergency unit in north Belfast is in doubt. Critical care services in hospitals such as Daisy Hill in Newry should be restructured, he said.
