de Brún welcomes new cancer care centre for Belfast

13 March, 2006

Sinn Féin MEP Bairbre de Brún has today welcomed the opening of a new cancer care centre at the City Hospital in Belfast.

Speaking from Strasbourg the former Assembly Health Minister said:

"This state of the art centre will greatly improve services to cancer patients and their families.

"One in three Europeans is diagnosed with cancer and the disease kills one in four people in Europe. Effective prevention strategies and the most up-to-date care are needed to combat this.

"Having seen the plans in their early stages it gives me great satisfaction to see the cancer centre open its doors to patients for the first time today." ENDS
