Southern Health and Social Care Trust

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Southern Health and Social Care Trust (Irish: Iontaobhas Sláinte agus Cúraim Shóisialaigh an Deiscirt) provides health and social care services in Northern Ireland. It runs Craigavon Area Hospital, Daisy Hill Hospital in Newry, Lurgan Hospital and South Tyrone Hospital as well as Armagh Community Hospital and St Luke's Hospital in Armagh. St Luke's provides mental health services. Daisy Hill Hospital emergency department is under threat because of difficulty in retaining staff.[3] The trust serves an estimated population of 380,312 (June 2017 estimates).[4]


The trust was established on 1 April 2007 when the Health and Social Services Trusts in the five local Government Districts of Newry & Mourne, Banbridge, Armagh, Craigavon and Dungannon were dissolved under the Dissolution Orders 2007.[5]

The Trusts in the Southern Health and Social Services Board Area that were abolished were:

  • Craigavon Area (Lurgan/Portadown) Hospitals Trust
  • Craigavon and Banbridge Health and Social Services Trust
  • Armagh and Dungannon Health and Social Services Trust
  • Newry & Mourne Health and Social Services Trust[5]

The trust was allocated funds from the Waiting List Initiative in 2015-6 which was supposed to help them meet NHS targets for surgery. They paid their surgical consultants almost £247,000 to do extra work, but it had no effect on the waiting lists.[6]
