SDLP delegation visit Southern Area Hospice

Southern Area Hospice recently hosted a delegation of senior politicians from the SDLP including local MLA’s Dominic Bradley MLA, and Karen McKevitt MLA, with Health Committee member Conal McDevitt MLA and Councillor Connaire McGreevy.

It is important for a charitable organisation such as Southern Area Hospice to remain at the forefront of the political agenda both locally and nationally and the team met with senior management, staff, patients and their families.

The delegation also had a very interesting discussion around the impact of the economic recession on charities and the forthcoming changes in the health service with the implementation of ‘Transforming your Care’.

The group were able to see first-hand the high level of care provided by the Hospice to help understand the work done in this area and the lobbying required for additional support and funding.
