Upper Bann MLA Carla Lockhart has met with Cathy McKillop the NI Director of Shine UK, a Spina Bifida charity.

Earlier this year Mrs Lockhart attended an international conference held by medical experts on the merits of fetoscopic surgery in babies at Queens University.

Following on from this conference she worked with the charity on a number of issues surrounding Spina Bifida and the provision of folic acid, and raised the issue with Paula Bradley MLA, chair of the Health Committee.
