McCann commends Royal Management and Staff over Alert

18 April, 2008


Sinn Féin West Belfast MLA Fra McCann has praised the efforts of management and staff at the Royal Group of Hospitals who this afternoon responded quickly, efficiently and calmly to an alert created by a concern over gas found on a construction site within the Royal.

Mr McCann said:

"This afternoon gas was discovered on a construction site within the Royal. The management immediately took steps to ensure that patient care was not disrupted and that there was no risk to the public or to staff or patients. This included the temporary redirection of patients from the Royal A&E to the City Hospital.

"My party colleague Cllr Tom Hartley spoke this afternoon to the Royal and I want to commend the efforts of the management and staff at the Royal who responded to this problem quickly, efficiently and calmly." Críoch
