Cope seeks assurances that planned hospital works will proceed

Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher says assurances are needed that planned improvements at St Joseph’s Hospital, Stranorlar and Ramelton Community Hospital are protected.

He also wants commitments that a proposal to pursue a new community hospital in Lifford in 2021 will go ahead.
