Antrim Area Hospital: Man with multiple sclerosis 'furious' over DNR order

A County Antrim man who was unaware that a "do not resuscitate" (DNR) order had been placed on his medical file has said he feels his human rights have been violated.

Neill Birnie is paralysed from the neck down as a result of secondary progressive multiple sclerosis.

In 2014, he was admitted to Antrim Area Hospital three times with pneumonia.

He told BBC Newsline that he was "furious" about what had happened.
