Sinn Féin's Michelle O'Neill visits Great Ormond's Street hospital.

Sinn Féin MLA and deputy chair of the Health Committee, Michelle O'Neill will be visiting Great Ormond's Street hospital tomorrow, the 3rd of March, 2009. The purpose of the visit is to examine care and services that are not available locally for our children.

Speaking today Ms O'Neill said:

"I welcome the chance to visit Great Ormond Street hospital. It has a name internationally as providing quality specialist care and services for children suffering from a wide range of illness.

"We hope to learn from experts and professionals in the field of child health provision at key major centres of specialist care examining treatments, methodology, specialised equipment and the overall costs of providing these services.

"This is part of a wider examination by members of the Health Committee into services that are not provided locally. We will also travel to the Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago in March to examine other forms of specialist care."
