McGuinness –Mid Ulster should not lose A&E services

12 May, 2010 - by Westminster

Sinn Féin MP for Mid Ulster Martin McGuinness MLA has stated that the Mid Ulster Hospital should not lose its A&E services

Speaking earlier Mr McGuinness said:

“The decision to move A&E services away from the Mid Ulster Hospital is the wrong decision. It will place a further strain on local health services and has created a black hole of emergency cover for some areas of the Mid Ulster region.

“Local people will be very concerned about this move and I will be contacting Michael McGimspey on this matter. While I understand there are pressures on the overall health budget, prioritising short term gains to save money, over long term, needs based, planning is not the way forward.”
