Stormont Health Minister Edwin Poots has been urged to clarify if the admissions policy on NHS care homes will be changed.

It follows the announcement of a reprieve for 18 NHS care homes earmarked for closure.

Stephanie Greenwood of Unison said if homes were not taking on new residents, their long-term future was in doubt.
