She said “Its very a  positive development  that the  University of Ulster has started the search for the Foundation Dean of Medicine based at the  Magee  Medical School.

In February I and Raymond McCartney were delighted to accept Professor Paddy Nixon’s request to meet with him and senior management to discuss their ongoing work to expand the Magee campus. Our discussions focused on a range of issues including the UU’s plans for the development of a medical school at Magee.

In the time ahead we need to ensure that Magee’s potential is realised.
