The partner of a Belfast cancer patient has called on the Health Minister to change "heartbreaking" rules preventing her from accompanying her to appointments.

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, she questioned why the infection control rule was still necessary when many other lockdown measures have been relaxed.

Her partner, who wishes to remain anonymous, works as a nurse and was diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer in April.
