Chance to fix healthcare not to be wasted
The Compton review into health and social care is a comprehensive and well-researched document which offers a template for transforming care in Northern Ireland.
It places an emphasis on quality of services for individuals, rather than concentrating on institutions. It prioritises the empowerment of patients and clients.
But when the need for change has been highlighted before, former health ministers at Stormont have chosen to ignore it.
This time, the opportunity for change mustn't be squandered.
