Consultation Outcomes

Equality Impact Assessment on Belfast Trust Implementation Plan to close Muckamore Abbey Hospital

Belfast Trust would like to thank all those who took part and responded to this consultation. The scope of the consultation focussed on how to implement the closure of Muckamore Abbey Hospital, through resettlement of the patients and management of staff in the best way for all concerned. We recognise the importance of engaging and involving people with significant lived experience.

The Trust has diligently considered all the responses received and the feedback provided at our different engagement events during the 5 month consultation period – all of which have informed this outcome paper and the summary paper. These have been shared firstly with our Trust Directors, and subsequently, with our Trust Board on 12th June 2024 and have been approved for publication.

The summary paper will also be made available in easyread; a local social enterprise is taking this work forward.


As well as always encouraging our stakeholders to get involved in Belfast Trust consultations we also wish to encourage you to view and get involved in Department of Health consultations. You can find information about current and previous consultations on the Department of Health website.

The Department of Health is committed to working with stakeholders and those with an interest in its work and engages with a wide range of representative groups and individuals to obtain views which contribute to formulating policy and making decisions.
