North Antrim DUP MLA Paul Frew has said he hopes the design and the construction of the air ambulance helipad at the Royal Hospital will happen as swiftly as possible.

It follows a question to the Health Minister which asked whether the helipad would be operational before the North West 200.

Paul Frew said, “The implementation of the air ambulance had a high level of public support and many would like to see it in place as soon as possible. 

However I do recognise there are processes which have to take place. It is important that these are done properly and that a first class service is put in place. Furthermore medical staff and those in the health profession need to be confident that the right model of care is in place, so that they can carry out their job effectively.

Safety is paramount and I would ask that the Minister and her officials do everything they can to ensure the process is carried out within an appropriate time frame.”
