Local MLA Pam Cameron has met with the Friends of Muckamore group over concerns over re-settling patients back into the community.
Mrs Cameron was in attendance at the meeting between the friends and families of Muckamore residents and the Minister for Health, Social Services and Social Services, Edwin Poots MLA, on Friday.
“This meeting was an important step forward for the friends and families of people who are long term residents of Muckamore and are concerned at the resettlement process of their loved ones from the hospital into the community,” Mrs Cameron said.
She added: “The Minister was very sympathetic to their concerns and I hope that suitable provision can be made in order to minimise the distress any potential move may cause.
“I will continue to work closely with families and relatives and will ensure their voices are heard at Stormont.”
