The Commissioner for Older People for Northern Ireland, Eddie Lynch said:“I have now received all the responses required from the Relevant Authorities to my ‘Home Truths’ report on the investigation into Dunmurry Manor Care Home. I am grateful to the authorities for meeting the deadline of 1st October 2018.

“I welcome the statement from the Department of Health confirming that they are committed to addressing the failings that my investigation uncovered.

“I will be examining these responses to my ‘Home Truths’ report very carefully. This process will take some time and I will issue a fuller statement on the content of the responses once I have analysed all of the information I have received.’’
