After months of campaigning by DAUK, David Nicholl, Alan Woodall GP Survival and others, a Parliamentary inquiry has now been announced by the Health Select Committee.
Despite the request coming from the grassroots, disappointingly no doctors or organisations representing doctors have been invited to give evidence. However, the Health Select Committee will be hearing from Charlie Massey.
We have written to the HSC to urgently clarify, and ask them to include representatives from the medical profession, in what is a very important, at the moment incredibly unbalanced, inquiry for us all.
The HSC has given assurances that doctors can attend and observe. Dr Jenny Vaughan will be attending representing DAUK.
DAUK would like to see as many doctors as possible attend. For those who can’t attend the inquiry will be streamed live on Parliament TV and DAUK will keep our members updated.
