The importance of continuing cross-border healthcare was stressed during a recent visit by An Taoiseach Micheál Martin to Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry.
Earlier this month, Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine and Donegal T.D. Charlie McConalogue, visited Altnagelvin hospital together with Taoiseach Micheál Martin and met with Chief Executive Neil Guckian and his team to discuss important cross border care initiatives.
Commenting on the visit, Minister McConalogue said “Cross-border health care shared services are essential for Donegal people and for people all around the North-West.
“I was delighted to introduce An Taoiseach to the staff, frontline workers and board members of the hospital on his visit and, in particular, to meet with the North West Cancer Centre and Cath Lab teams, both of which are vitally important services to the people of Donegal.
“I will continue to advocate for the advancement of shared cross-border care services and I thank all involved for their work in making these vital projects work so well.”
