Patients need a minister for health, not minister for half an hour – McLaughlin

1 Mins read

Sinn Féin MLA Maeve McLaughlin called on former health minister Simon Hamilton to get back to work and put the needs of users of the health service before his party’s electoral squabble with the UUP.

Maeve McLaughlin said:

“Simon Hamilton went to work briefly yesterday before resigning once again and fleeing his responsibilities.

“Patients and health service users need a minister for health, not a minister for half an hour.

“The former health minister is clearly more engaged in stunt politics than working to meet the needs of all users of the health services.

“Mr Hamilton also continues to peddle the shameful nonsense that we should take money out of the pockets of children with disabilities and adults with severe disabilities to fund the health service.”
