19 April 2021

I recognise the additional pressures on services arising from the pandemic and am delighted that the Northlands Centre in Derry/Londonderry has been able to reopen, following the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions.

The UK Government is committed to providing NDNA funding to the Executive for the Derry/Londonderry Addiction Centre.

We will continue to work with the Executive to disburse funding from the NDNA financial package and we will announce the details for the allocation of this additional funding in due course.
