Health campus subject to funds

Health Minister Jim Wells says a proposal for a new social care campus in Londonderry will only proceed subject to future budget exercises and the confirmation of its affordability.

He made the statement in response to Stormont Health Committee chair Maeve McLaughlin.

“You are aware the Health and Social Care Cityside scheme in Londonderry is included within the Health and Social Care Board’s Strategic Implementation Plan for future investment in primary care infrastructure.

“The Plan remains under consideration alongside other capital investment priorities, and subject to the outcome of future budget exercises and confirmation of value for money and affordability,” said the Minister.
