Spokesperson of Co-operating for Cancer Care NorthWest, Noelle Duddy, has said that they have written to both Minister of Health, Michelle O'Neill, MLA and TD Simon Harris, Minister of Health for confirmation following Brexit.

They want to reassure people in the North West that Britain leaving the EU will have no impact on the cross-border service of Altnagelvin's Rdiotherapy Unit.

Due to open this Autumn, Minister Joe McHugh has already said that there will be no impact on the service and it will still serve people on both sides of the border.
