Sinn Féin councillor Anne Marie Fitzgerald has welcomed an additional weekly fracture clinic being provided in the Tyrone County Hospital in Omagh, which become operational from the 20 August. The additional clinic will treat referral patients from the local area.

Speaking on the development Cllr Fitzgerald said:

"This is a welcome development and will come as welcome news to local fracture patients, who would have previously had to travel to Altnagelvin hospital for this service. As I understand it this specialist service become available at the Tyrone County Hospital site on 20th August. I know that this issue was of concern locally and I have had many people raising the issue with me directly in the recent past. Therefore I am glad that a resolution has become available through the Western Health and Social Care Trust.
