Swine flu mum is ‘stable’

A woman who was transferred from Northern Ireland to a London hospital for treatment after being diagnosed with swine flu shortly after giving birth is in a stable condition.

The woman, who is believed to be 36, delivered her baby at the Erne Hospital in Enniskillen but was subsequently taken to Craigavon Area Hospital where she was diagnosed with the virus.

A spokeswoman from the Southern Health Trust confirmed that a patient who was diagnosed with swine flu was transferred to Royal Brompton Hospital in London last Friday.

A spokeswoman from the Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust described the woman’s condition as stable.

Neither the Southern or Royal Brompton Trust would give any further details on the type of treatment the woman is receiving.
