Welcome to judithcochrane.com where you can discover more about me and East Belfast, the constituency I represent within the Northern Ireland Assembly. In our role as elected representatives, I believe it's important for us to be accommodating and accessible to all our constituents and I hope that through my website, I can engage more effectively with my constituents and keep you better informed of my work on your behalf. The site also serves as a platform for you to contact me directly with any concerns or comments you might have and I would encourage you to get in touch regarding any issue, big or small. Thank you for taking the time to visit the site and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
How easy or difficult is it for you to access services at GP practices in east Belfast? As part of the Patient and Client Council's current GP Access project, Judith is encouraging local constituents to complete a short health facilities survey, in order to provide a better picture of GP services across east Belfast and establish how they can improve going forward.
Yesterday, Judith joined over 100 brave souls, to take up the challenge of the 100 ft high, 1000 ft long Zip Wire in front of Parliament Buildings, Stormont to raise funds for Action Mental Health (AMH).
Judith is encouraging families to consider a new childcare service which sees parents pay only for the hours they use, with no retainers or holiday fees. The service, designed and delivered by local social enterprise Employers for Childcare, offers an affordable childcare choice for all families, with parents even having the option to use Childcare Vouchers or Tax Credits to help reduce costs even further.
