Health Minister Edwin Poots has announced the expansion of specialist transport services for sick children.

The expansion of NISTAR (Northern Ireland Specialist Transport and Retrieval Services) will see it staffed around the clock and supported by a new dedicated ambulance.

He said it was important that a child's care was not compromised by having a poor service of transport.
