The consultation closes on 15 January 2013.

Transforming Your Care

The health and social care system in Northern Ireland is being reshaped through the Transforming Your Care (TYC) proposals - these aim for more services to be provided in the community, closer to people’s homes where possible.

The key proposals include reshaping:

  • Primary care (GP surgeries and health centres)
  • Use of new technology
  • Statutory residential homes
  • Mental health services
  • Acute services
  • Maternity care
  • Palliative care.

An information leaflet will also be sent to every household to advise on how to get involved in the consultation process and there will be a series of public meetings to discuss the proposals.
