北愛爾蘭的健康。北愛爾蘭正在 "獲得我們所支付的醫療服務

周五,該工會表示,其在北愛爾蘭、英格蘭和威爾士的成員將於12月15日和20日舉行罷工,以解決有關工資和人員編制的爭議。

梅先生在貝爾法斯特舉行的醫療保健財務管理協會北愛爾蘭分會的年會上說,提供人們所需要的東西越來越難。

"他說:"以我們現有的資源,我們發現越來越難提供滿足人們所有需求的健康和社會護理系統。

"我們都希望回到一個能在每個人需要的時候為他們提供及時護理的衛生服務。

梅先生告訴代表們,雖然可以採取 "許多行動 "來 "使衛生和社會保健更加高效和有效....,但我們決不能假裝僅靠效率就能縮小需求和供應之間不斷擴大的差距。"

梅先生補充說:"現實情況也是,我們的人口老齡化和醫學科學的進步意味着需求和能力之間的差距在逐年擴大,冬天也是如此。"

"與此同時,許多需要時間不那麼緊迫的護理的人不得不等待更長的時間--往往是在痛苦和不適中。這不是公眾所期望的護理水平,也不是我們任何人所希望提供的。

皇家護理學院秘書長帕特-卡倫在透露其罷工行動的細節時說,護理人員 "受夠了被視為理所當然,受夠了低工資和不安全的人員配置水平,受夠了不能為我們的病人提供他們應得的護理"。


On Friday, the trade union said its members in Northern Ireland, England and Wales would walk out on 15 and 20 December in a dispute about pay and staffing levels.

Mr May told the annual conference of the Northern Ireland Branch of the Healthcare Financial Management Association in Belfast it was getting harder to deliver what people needed.

"With the resources available to us, we are finding it increasingly difficult to deliver the health and social care system needed to meet all the demands of the population," he said.

"We all want to get back to a health service that provides timely care to everyone who needs it when they need it.

Mr May told delegates that while "many actions" could be taken to "make health and social care more efficient and effective….we must not pretend that efficiencies alone will close the widening gap between demand and supply."

Mr May added: "The reality is also that our ageing population and advances in medical science mean the gap between demand and capacity is growing year-on-year, winter-on-winter."

"At the same time, many people requiring less time-critical care are having to wait much longer - often in pain and discomfort. This is not the level of care that the public expects or that any of us wants to provide."

Revealing details about its strike action, Pat Cullen, the general secretary of the Royal College of Nursing, said nursing staff "had enough of being taken for granted, enough of low pay and unsafe staffing levels, enough of not being able to give our patients the care they deserve".
