Conor Murphy welcomes investment in Daisy Hill‏ Hospital

25 September, 2008

Sinn Féin MP & MLA for Newry and Armagh, Conor Murphy has welcomed announcements that there is to be an investment of £500,000 in the maternity unit at Daisy Hill Hospital in Newry.

Conor Murphy said,

"The extra funding will mean an enhanced delivery suite; a dedicated induction area; improvements to the maternity ward and development of an assessment unit outside the maternity ward.

"When I met with the Health Trust recently I sought assurances that there would be no dilution of services at Daisy Hill Hospital and that the people of this area would receive the high standard of health care that they deserve.

"I very much welcome these recent announcements, but I hope that this is part of a long term plan which will ensure that Daisy Hill hospital can provide high quality healthcare for the future." ENDS
