Re-elected Chair of All Party Group on Congenital Heart Disease
Robin Swann, the North Antrim UUP MLA and Party Leader, has been re-elected Chair of All Party Group on (APG) Congenital Heart Disease at Stormont. Mr Swann said a number of cross-party All Party Groups continue to meet to lobby the Department of Health and Trusts.
He added: "I warmly welcome the update we received on the development of an all island children's heart surgery stragety, but unfortunately a number of children still have to travel to England for their operations, so the support from Children's Heartbeat Trust for those children & patents who still have to travel to England for procedures is especially welcome.
