Plans: Robin Swann says the operations should resume as soon as possible

Plans are being developed to allow lifesaving kidney transplants to be carried out again by Northern Ireland's struggling health service.

Health Minister Robin Swann has revealed work is now under way to enable the organ surgery to resume as quickly and safely as possible.

Earlier this year it emerged that organs from deceased donors were regularly being turned down instead of being used for transplantation because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
