23 September, 2019 - by Elisha 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.”
