Older patients should be treated with respect19th May 2009
The chairman of the BMA’s Northern Ireland Council has called for older people to have equal access to specialist treatment and be treated with respect.
Dr Brian Patterson’s view came in response to a debate in the Northern Ireland Assembly. He said: “We have long insisted that services for older people should be person-centred and properly resourced in terms of both staff and funding. Healthcare for older people should be easily accessible and appropriate to an individual’s needs, irrespective of where they live.”
