The Right Time, The Right Place

Sir Liam was subsequently tasked with investigating whether an improvement in the quality of governance arrangements is needed and whether the current arrangements support a culture of openness, learning and making amends.

Sir Liam’s report was published by Minister Jim Wells on 27 January 2014 in conjunction with an Oral Statement to the Assembly. The report set out ten recommendations which refer to a wide range of areas across the health service.
