Seven months to save £70 million. The Nolan Show can reveal this morning that all 5 hospital trusts will hold public meetings next Thursday throughout Northern Ireland to reveal their plans to slash £70 million from hospital budgets. These meetings are being called "extraordinary meetings". You can go along to these meetings - they are public consultations - so we are giving you a heads up about them this morning. They will all take place next Thursday - the 24th - at exactly the same time - all at 12 noon. In the Ulster Hospital, Knockbracken Healthcare Park, Craigavon hospital, Antrim Area Hospital, and Altnagelvin Area Hospital. The withdrawal of £70 million of funding from healthcare could have a significant impact on your care. Stephen got reaction from the former head of the Health and Social Care Board - John Compton.
