Cuts to budget will delay city cancer unit by six months

Health Minister Edwin Poots has warned that the opening of a new radiotherapy unit in Londonderry will be delayed by up to six months if cuts to his health budget are pushed through. Mr Poots told members of the Stormont Health Committee that £140m in proposed savings will include £2m in cuts, which will directly affect the Altnagelvin radiotherapy unit.
