The Lagan Valley MLA was speaking after meeting the organisation on the matter. The previous health centre was served by a nearby bus stop but a recent relocation on the Lagan Valley hospital site means those using public transport to access the health centre have been left without a bus connection.

"I’m delighted Translink has committed to review and examine the bus routes across Lisburn to help with connectivity,” he said.

“They have also confirmed they would seek to look at connections that currently exist from the bus centre that travel past the Lagan Valley Hospital site, with a view to making public transport more accessible and convenient for those using the new Health Centre.

"This is positive news for local residents who rely on public transport. Improving connections to the health centre will ensure everyone in the community has easy access to essential healthcare services.

"The new Lisburn Health Centre is an important addition to the local area, and Translink's commitment to improving public transport connections is a welcome move.”
