East Londonderry MP Gregory Campbell and MLAs George Robinson and Maurice Bradley will meet with the Chief Executive of the Northern Trust next month to discuss the Causeway Hospital.

It is hoped that the meeting Dr Tony Stevens will give the DUP representatives a chance to highlight some of the ongoing staff issues at the hospital and quash some of the rumours that have been circulating about the closure of Departments at the site.

MLA Bradley said: “Firstly I thank Dr Stevens for taking time to meet with us.

“Over the last few months there has much talk about the Hospital. Press reports have highlighted shortages in senior A&E doctors and high costs in locum emergency cover. All of these issues will be discussed at the meeting in early August.

“It is vital that we have a fully functioning hospital here on the North Coast.
“We saw earlier this month the huge influx of visitors to the area with the Irish Open golf at Portstewart. Every summer the population of the area grows as more and more people holiday here, this highlights the need for our hospital to be staffed appropriately.”

Meanwhile MLA Bradley has also welcomed the news that Antrim Area Hospital is to get a second MRI scanner.

“The provision of a second scanner in Antrim will enhance the range and volume of scans available,” said Mr Bradley. “This is positive news and will reduce current waiting times,” he said.
“I would also look forward to a second scanner being funded by the Department for the Causeway Hospital.”

The Trust has also revealed that a further investment of £300,000 will be spent on refurbishing the eight bed critical care unit at Antrim Hospital.
