News on this development came in a reply to a question Health Minister Jim Wells from Chair of the Assembly’s Health Committee Foyle MLA Maeve McLaughlin ?????????????????????????????????
She said “I put forward a question in the Assembly to ask the Health Minister for  an update on timeline for the North Wing development at Altnagelvin Hospital.

He has replied to say the detailed design work and tender preparation are progressing well and it is currently planned to award the contract and commence construction on site by late Summer/early Autumn 2015.
This is positive news for the North West region that this work is to progress in the coming months.
I visited Altnagelvin recently and was amazed at the amount of work that is taking place. This coupled with the new Radiotherapy unit is much need investment in our health estate and it is important that we maximise this benefit to the wider economy.
