Fight to protect Daisy Hill services must continue - Brady
Sinn Féin MP Mickey Brady said the fight to protect emergency services at Daisy Hill Hospital must continue.
Speaking after a public meeting the Newry/Armagh MP said:
"At today's meeting myself, Cathal Boylan and Megan Fearon all pointed out the inequality between Daisy Hill and Craigavon.
"Newry is on the main Dublin to Belfast corridor and is very much dependent on the emergency services provided by Daisy Hill.
"Daisy Hill also provides for people living along the border corridor and as such the loss of the emergency services will be detrimental.
“On the back of today's meeting the Trust has announced a regional summit on options to sustain the Emergency Department at Daisy Hill Hospital.
"While I welcome this initiative I hope it has a positive outcome.
"We need to keep the momentum going and continue the fight to protect the services Daisy Hill Hospital."
