I am committed to supporting our Health Service and my party’s policy to provide cradle to grave healthcare, free at the point of delivery.
As Minister for Health I fought tooth and nail for the future of the Health Service and it’s staff. While the DUP, Sinn Fein and Alliance Party voted for cuts to Health the UUP stood firm. I believe in a quality health service that meets the needs of our people from cradle to grave, free at the point of delivery. As Health Minister I delivered free prescriptions for all so we do not tax the sick!
