United voice coming from city to secure medical school – McCallion

Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has said there is a united voice coming from the city to secure a medical school at Magee in Derry.

The Foyle MP said:

“This morning I attended a meeting of party leaders in Derry’s Guildhall alongside Sinn Féin Vice President Michelle O’Neill and the leaders and representatives of other political parties.

“We discussed the need to secure a medical school at the Magee campus of the Ulster University in Derry as part of the wider economic regeneration of the city.

“Today’s meeting comes ahead of a meeting I have arranged with the permanent secretary of the Department of Health, Richard Pengelly, to which I have invited all key stakeholders and other political parties, to discuss progressing this vital project for the north west.

“There is a united voice coming from this city and across the north west for this medical school and we are determined to see it secured for the benefit of the entire region.” Ends/Críoch
