NIHRC: National Inquiry into Emergency Care

The Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission (NIHRC) has launched a National Inquiry into Emergency Care.

The Commission wants to hear from those who have recent experience of Emergency Care, including from patients, carers, and members of staff.  There is a confidential freephone, open from 10 am to 3 pm Monday to Friday, for the next three weeks; or you can complete an online Questionnaire.

The Commission will also be holding Public Hearings in the autumn, across Northern Ireland, to go into more depth on the emerging issues; and will be visiting A & E Departments.

This is a chance to have your say on your experience of Emergency Care, in a confidential, inquisitorial manner, and to help build recommendations for improvement: go to to see full details!
