DUP Leader Arlene Foster MLA has welcomed additional support for the NHS from the Prime Minister. Northern Ireland will receive its Barnett share of the £3b.
Mrs Foster said,
"We had a useful briefing with HMG in advance of the announcement and we were able to confirm that there will be an allocation for Northern Ireland. This is welcome news on top of the other supports announced by HMT.
Our Health and Social Care sector has been valiant throughout this pandemic. It is of critical importance that those frontline services are properly resourced to enable them to do their job."
