A woman who had waited eight years for a hip operation at Altnagelvin Area Hospital has had her procedure in a private clinic in Galway paid for by the Western Trust.

Lynn McCarron (62), from the Galliagh area of Londonderry, endured intense pain which meant even moving around her home was difficult and a shopping trip was impossible.
