NI Assembly Election Soapbox: Teresa McKenna's view

In this week's Election Soapbox, we focus on healthcare in rural areas.

Teresa McKenna says it's not fair that A&E services are concentrated in major towns, when access to emergency treatment can be a "matter of life and death".

She lives outside Magherafelt, and says the risk of complications increases with every mile travelled to hospital.
