Ford welcomes Templepatrick hospital plan

Alliance Leader David Ford has welcomed news that plans are afoot to build a new hospital for young people with mental health problems in Templepatrick.

The South Antrim MLA said: “It’s a facility we need and I would hope that young people are provided with extra mental health services that are tailored to their needs as soon as possible.

“I welcome news that a facility is being planned. Clearly there are planning issues that need to be overcome but the fact that this initiative has been made public is significant.

” Northern Ireland is crying out for a dedicated service for young people and this is a very positive announcement.”
