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.”
