‘Time for action on Derry medical school’ – McCallion

Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has reiterated the need for sign off on the Medical School at Magee University. 


Speaking after attending a cross-party meeting with Sinn Féin Leas Uachtarán Michelle O’Neill and the Head of the Civil Service, the Foyle MP said: 


“Today we once again met with the Head of the Civil Service and other officials to discuss progress on a medical school for Derry.


“The potential to create investment, train more doctors and plug the existing staff shortfalls exists through this project. 


“Completion of the Medical School will be a key step towards the overall expansion of Magee University and the economic regeneration of the north west. 


“It’s important that there is cross-party support for this project and that we are speaking with a united voice. 


“The civil service should finally approve the business case and ensure the medical school is delivered for the north west.” CRÍOCH/ENDS
