Health and Social Care Services Sub-Committee

The Fermanagh and Omagh Health and Social Care Services Sub-Committee is Chaired by Councillor Deborah Erksine for the 2021-2022 year.

The Fermanagh and Omagh Health and Social Care Services Sub-Committee will provide a forum for ongoing engagement between Fermanagh and Omagh District Council (the Council) and the Western Health and Social Care Services Trust (the Trust) to inform and influence the shape of delivery of health and social care services with the Fermanagh and Omagh district so that the highest standard of and access to services is provided to the people of the district.

It will be the responsibility of the Trust’s Chief Executive to ensure that the collective view of the Fermanagh and Omagh Health and Social Care Services Sub-Committee informs and influences  the Western Trust’s input into services design and delivery.  This recognises the Western Trust’s role as a Provider organisation as opposed to the Health and Social Care Services Board (HSCB) which carries responsibility for the Commissioning of services to meet the needs of everyone and those who visit the area.
