New health centres given go-ahead for Lisburn and Newry

Health Minister Edwin Poots has given the go-ahead for two new £40m health centres.

The new facilities in Lisburn and Newry will accommodate GPs and community services provided by the trusts.

Mr Poots said the new centres, which will serve as hubs for the provision of health care, were a pivotal part of the reform of health and social care.
