McGuinness opposes health cuts

Sinn Féin's Martin McGuinness will meet with the chairperson of the Northern Health Board, Robert Hanna today, Thursday, to discuss the proposed cuts in acute services available at the Mid-Ulster Hospital and the effect any changes will have on future prospects of the employees.
McGuinness said, "I am concerned about the proposed downgrading of acute services at the Mid-Ulster Hospital in Magherafelt and the adverse effect this would have on the job security of the employees. I intend to highlight the ramifications of the cancellation of any services on the residents of the catchment area and the job losses which would undoubtedly ensure".
