Heading calls for full disclosure of Dunmurry Manor reports

SDLP West Belfast Councillor Brian Heading has called on the Department of Health to commit to full disclosure of all reports and reviews of actions which led to care failings at Dunmurry Manor.

Cllr Heading said:


“The systemic failures of care at Dunmurry Manor led to a degrading and disgraceful environment for vulnerable residents. The investigation, report and recommendations from the Commissioner for Older People reveal the extent of these serious failures and the action required to address the situation.


“In order to reform the system and restore confidence in residential care provision, the Department of Health must now commit to full disclosure of any further reviews or reports into the actions which allowed this toxic environment to endure. This should include the independent review of actions by the HSC currently underway.


“Public confidence in residential care has plummeted since a light was shone on the practice at Dunmurry Manor. The only way to repair that relationship is a commitment to transparency and accountability at all levels. Publication of further reviews is the first step.”
