Minister to make Derry cancer centre decision

The health minister Edwin Poots is due to make an announcement on the radiotherapy centre at Altnagelvin Hospital in Londonderry on Monday.

He will inform the Assembly of his decision at about midday.

The radiotherapy unit was put on hold in March after the previous health minister Michael McGimpsey said he did not have the money to run it.

Mr Poots has held meetings with patients and cancer specialists ahead of his announcement.
