McLaughlin calls for safe return of defibrillator machine

Sinn Féin Foyle MLA and chair of the Assembly’s Health Committee Maeve McLaughlin has appealed for the immediate return of a defibrillator which was amongst a number of items stolen from a private ambulance parked in the grounds of Altnagelvin Hospital.


She said


“The theft of an essential piece of life saving medical equipment must be condemned. Given the fact that the defibrillator is virtually useless to those outside of the medical profession, it is clearly theft for theft’s sake.



I want to take this opportunity to call for the safe return of the defibrillator machine which is an essential piece of life-saving equipment.”
