McCallion calls on Department of Health to release Gardiner Report
Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has called on the Department of Health to release the findings of the Gardiner Report in order to progress the planned new medical school at Magee.
The Foyle MP said:
“It’s my understanding that the Gardiner Report which looks at the future needs of medical provision and doctors here in the north has been completed.
“The findings of this report are key to moving forward the establishment of a graduate entry medical school and putting Magee University on the map as a centre of excellence.
“This is a key element to unlocking the city’s unique circumstances and reaching its full potential as set out in the Strategic Growth Plan, produced by and for the people of the north west.
“Expansion of the university has been a priority for Sinn Féin in order to transform the north west region and begin to address decades of inequality and under-investment.
“The Department of Health must now release the findings of the Gardiner report to allow the medical school project to move forward.”
