Ambulance station ‘needed more than ever’

BALLYCASTLE SDLP councillor Dónal Cunningham has said that the Ambulance Service Station in Ballycastle is needed more now than ever before.

He said: “Whatever the outcome of the Local Commissioning Groups Review on Health Service provision, the Ballycastle community will depend heavily on an efficient and locally delivered ambulance service.

“Moyle Council strongly supports the retention of Acute Services at the Causeway Hospital in Coleraine, to get the best outcome from these services it is absolutely critical that the Ambulance Service has a base in Ballycastle which can serve people living in rural isolated communities.”
