Multiple Sclerosis unit closure 'will be devastating'
Closing Northern Ireland's only dedicated respite centre will have a devastating impact on people with multiple sclerosis, a woman who uses the unit has said.
It is one of a number of cuts to the health service announced on Thursday.
More than 4,000 people in Northern Ireland are affected by MS, one of the highest rates in the world.
The unit, in Dalriada Hospital in Ballycastle, will close until March next year.
It has 12 beds where patients can get respite.
