Healthcare UK

Question for Northern Ireland Office

UIN 204204, tabled on 7 July 2014

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, what recent discussions she has had with the Chief Executive of Healthcare UK to ensure that business, academia, health and public sector organisations in Northern Ireland are included in Healthcare UK's priorities for 2014-15.

I very much support the promotion of the Northern Ireland healthcare sector to overseas markets and supporting healthcare partnerships between Northern Ireland and overseas healthcare providers and I stand ready to work alongside Northern Ireland Executive Ministers in this regard.

But given that these relate to devolved matters in Northern Ireland, I would expect these discussions to be conducted primarily between the relevant Northern Ireland Executive Departments and Healthcare UK, rather than through the Northern Ireland Office.
