Sinn Féin Newry Assembly Member Mickey Brady has welcomed the decision for Stormont’s Health, Social Services and Public Safety Committee to hold its next committee meeting in Daisy Hill Hospital on Wednesday 7th December. The hospital has been featured regularly in the media in recent weeks after its long term future was said to be in jeopardy and awaiting results of the Compton Review,

Speaking to Newry Times, Brady said, “As a Newry MLA and a member of the Health Committee I am worried by the recent speculation regarding the future of Daisy Hill Hospital. I think it will be good for the committee to visit the hospital and I know that a tour of Daisy Hill and a presentation from the Southern Trust has been arranged. I am sure there will be an opportunity for committee members to speak with staff and patients and to get a sense of the variety of work being undertaken at Daisy Hill and the high level of professionalism among personnel there.”

He added, “In addition the committee will visit Ballybot House and hold meetings with representatives of Homestart, the MS Society and the Motor Neurone Disease Association.”
