South Eastern Health Trust to drop 'meals on wheels' daily service

The South Eastern Health Trust has defended its decision to reduce its provision of meals to older people in their homes from a daily delivery to fortnightly

Fearghal McKinney said he understood that the South Eastern Health Trust would instead deliver 14 frozen meals every two weeks, because of cutbacks.

The trust said people would continue to receive a nutritious meal and would benefit from a wider choice of options.
