People with cancer, palliative care patients and couples struggling to start a family are among those who could lose out as a result of a projected budget shortfall.

The director of finance at the Department of Health has warned that the draft budget will result in patients "being disappointed and finding that their needs are not met".

According to the draft budget for the upcoming financial year, there is not enough money for the Department of Health to deliver a series of commitments set out in the New Deal, New Approach deal to restore Stormont.
