An East Derry MLA is calling for new cross border health links which would see closer cooperation between Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry, the Causeway Hospital in Coleraine and also Letterkenny General Hospital.

John Dallat says at present, the Causeway Hospital's primary links are with Antrim Area Hospital, which is also in the Northern Health Trust area, but he believes it would be better for everyone if Coleraine were to look west rather than east.

Mr Dallat says this would benefit all the areas concerned......
