SDLP call for publication of cross border health report

The SDLP Health Spokesperson is calling for the publication of a report on cross border cooperation in health. Fermanagh South Tyrone MLA Tommy Gallagher says the report was compiled in 2007, but Health Minister Michael Mc Gimpsey refuses to publish it.

He says it's time to publish the document, and doesn't accept the minister's assertion that there is nothing of value in it...........
