14 February, 2017 - by Oliver McMullan


Sinn Féin's Oliver McMullan has welcomed the announcement from the health minister that communities from Glenarm and Carnlough will continue to have access to GP services.

The East Antrim candidate said; 

"I welcome the announcement from my party colleague and health minister Michelle O’Neill that new GP services will be in place from April for people from Glenarm and Carnlough. 

"The GP services, beginning in April, will ensure the residents of Glenarm continue to have access to GP services close by and will deliver improved services to residents in Carnlough. 

"The service will see a GP available four and a half days a week and a full-time practice nurse at a new base in Carnlough.

"Previously there had been fears about access to GP services in the Antrim Coast and Glens area and I raised that directly with the health minister when I brought her to the area recently. 

"While others engaged in scaremongering about access to GP services I worked with the health minister to ensure the continued provision of GP services for the area. 

"This is yet another example of Sinn Féin delivering for the community in East Antrim."
