Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has said her party remains fully committed to the delivery of the expansion of Magee university.
The Foyle MLA said:
“The expansion of Magee and the delivery of a graduate entry medical school remains a priority for Sinn Féin.
“We have raised this continually with the health minister in order to see it progressed.
“This is essential to the wider economic development and regeneration of the north west.
“The current public health crisis has also once again highlighted the need for more doctors to be trained locally.
“Together with others local representatives, I have signed a letter which has been sent to the heath minister asking him to sign off on the business case as a matter of urgency.”
