NI: Fight the health cuts
Hands off our health service By Pat Lawlor, health worker RVH Belfast IN 2007, the Northern Ireland Executive introduced its Programme for Government for health. It was heralded as a means to enhance the health and well-being of the people of Northern Ireland into the next decade.
