Fears over Bishop Auckland breast cancer clinic move

Campaigners have warned that lives could be put at risk by moving a County Durham breast cancer clinic.

The clinic, at Bishop Auckland General Hospital, has been transferred to Darlington, after health trust managers said it would allow patients access to the best equipment.

But there are concerns that the move will leave patients in rural areas with limited access to a vital service.

As Look North's political correspondent Mark Denten reports, it is the second time breast care services have been switched in County Durham in just a few months.
