Opportunity to get involved –  Share your views on future Dietetic, Orthoptic, Podiatric and Therapeutic Radiography services

The Department of Health is asking for your help in drawing up plans to ensure there are enough staff to deliver future Dietetic, Orthoptic, Podiatric and Therapeutic Radiography services for patients and clients.

Do have something to say about the future delivery of:

  • Dietetics (assessment, diagnosis and treatment of dietary and nutritional problems);
  • Orthoptics (diagnosis and treatment of defects of vision and abnormalities of eye movement);
  • Podiatry (prevention and treatment of diseases and conditions of the foot and lower limb); or
  • Therapeutic Radiography (planning and delivery of radiotherapy treatments).

The Department of Health is holding a Stakeholder Engagement Event on Friday 13 April 2018, from 10 am – 2 pm in Craigavon Civic Centre.

To book a place at this event email or call (028) 9052 3233 on or before 12.00 on Friday 30 March 2018.  Include your name, contact details, organisation and the area you are interested in.

Attendees will receive a full information pack. A light lunch will also be provided and service users will be able to claim travel expenses (car mileage currently at the NICS public transport rate). Please advise of any special requirements including dietary (e.g. gluten-free) or access needs.

If you can’t attend but wish to comment on these issues, please contact the Department using the details above to receive your information pack. Your written comments must be received on or before 17.00 on Friday 13 April 2018.
