Northern Ireland Confederation

The Northern Ireland Confederation for Health and Social Care (NICON) is the representative body for the organisations that make up the HSC. Our parent body is the NHS Confederation and we additionally have 45 associate members involved in health and social care, from the not for profit and business sectors.

We welcome the opportunity to respond to the Draft Programme for Government Framework published on the 26th May 2016. Our response is based on a whole system approach we have been seeking to develop over the last number of years. The views expressed are drawn from our member priorities set out in our 2016 election briefing ‘One Voice - Time for Change’ i which was agreed by over 50, organisations and the emerging themes at our annual conference in June 2016, when all of the key debates were set in the context of the new Programme for Government (PfG) approach.
