Storm Ophelia hits the health service with hundreds of appointments cancelled

Outpatient appointments and day case procedures were cancelled at Northern Ireland’s biggest health trust yesterday due as hospital staff braced themselves for storm Ophelia. Many regional specialities, including the main cancer centre and neurosurgery, are based at the trust with patients from across the north travelling to Belfast for treatment. The regional radiotherapy treatment unit, which is based at Altnagelvin, is accessed by patients across a wide geographical area.
