Sinn Féin welcome new Craigavon diving chamber as example of benefits of All-Ireland approach

29 July, 2004

Sinn Fein Health Spokesperson John O' Dowd has welcomed the announcement that there will be a new Diving Chamber based in the Craigavon Hospital as a result of £200,000 being made available.

Mr O'Dowd said:

"This is new diving chamber will be a valuable resource for people throughout the North West. It is a testament to the hard work and innovation being taken forward by the CAWT (Co-operation and Working Together) group.

"This is a shining example of the benefits of the All Ireland approach to developing services that can benefit people regardless or where the border is.

"The potential of developing more services on an All Ireland basis needs to further advanced. In many areas, not just in the provision of Health services, the reality is that the All Ireland approach is the only one that will see better access to services." ENDS
