Dr Brian Patterson, chairman of the BMA’s Northern Ireland Council, was responding to yesterday’s Northern Ireland Assembly debate on health provision for older people.
He added: ‘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.’
