Mallon requests urgent meeting following neurology recall report postponement

SDLP Deputy Leader Nichola Mallon MLA has requested an urgent meeting with the Permanent Secretary at the Department for Health following the postponement of the release of an outcomes report into the biggest patient recall in history.

She said:

 

“The neurology recall is the biggest patient recall in our history. The outcome and scale of over-diagnosis and misdiagnosis is a matter of patient and public interest. It is very disappointing that more than a year after the recall process began, this information has still not been released. Patients and the public deserve openness and transparency. They deserve to know why this information cannot be released, as was planned on Wednesday.

 

“I have written to the Permanent Secretary in the Department of Health to ask for an urgent meeting and a full explanation.”
