“Political Games of Stormont Parties Jeopardising Cancer Screenings” – Cllr Mullen
Cllr. Denise Mullen has called for more investment in Northern Bowel and Cervical screening programs.
Speaking today, Cllr Mullen said “The North's bowel and cervical screening programme is lagging worryingly behind. Compared to Britain where screening is offered to younger people and a more sensitive smear test is used, the North is in a dangerous position. This is putting people’s lives at risk.”
Cllr Mullen continued “The playground games of the Stormont parties means that improvements to screening programmes can’t have a guarantee of funding. This will have devastating impacts on individuals and their friends and families.”
