McCallion welcomes Raychel Ferguson inquest

Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has welcomed the announcement of a new inquest into the death of Derry schoolgirl Raychel Ferguson. 

The Foyle MP said:

“I welcome the announcement of a new inquest into the death of 9-year-old Raychel Ferguson who died from hyponatremia. 

“The Ferguson family – like all those affected by hyponatremia – have been waiting too long for the truth. 

“They are entitled to answers about the death of their daughter and I hope that this process will lead to some form of closure. 

“The Western Trust must co-operate fully with the inquest to ensure the Ferguson family can get the answers they deserve.”
