Foyle Sinn Féin MLA Maeve McLaughlin has called on health minister Edwin Poots to honour an Assembly commitment on a public campaign to raise awareness of ovarian cancer.

“There is a need for an ovarian awareness campaign now. A campaign separate from others where it will get the necessary coverage and make women aware of the early signs so that they can attend their GPs and get the proper diagnosis. This will save lives,” the MLA said.
