Mary Harney would consider the development of a new communuity hospital in Lifford

Health Minister Mary Harney has indicated she would consider the development of a new communuity hospital in Lifford, possibly as part of a Public Private Partnership.

Senator Brian O'Domhnaill says he spoke to Ms Harney in the wake of Sunday's march in Lifford, and they plan to meet again in the coming days.

He says the most important thing now is that the HSE does nothing to affect or stop servicves in Lifford, until the possibility of a new unit is fully explored.

Senator O'Domhnaill believes this is an achievable goal.
