Sinn Féin welcome development on new Fermanagh hospital

5 March, 2009

Sinn Féin MPA MLA for Fermanagh South Tyrone, Michelle Gildernew, has welcomed the announcement that a new backer has been found for a new hospital project offering acute services near to Enniskillen.

Speaking today Ms Gildernew said:

"The finding of a backer on the proposed acute hospital new build in Fermanagh is to be welcomed.

"I understand the NI Health Group is the preferred backer and now that they are on board I would hope that the provision of a hospital with acute facilities will move swiftly on.

"Foremost in any consideration for this, or any other hospital projects, in the area must be the retention and long-term sustainability of acute and other medical services for communities in Fermanagh."
