Asked by: Edward Mountain, Highlands and Islands, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
Date lodged: 3 December 2021
To ask the Scottish Government when work will resume on developing proposals for an additional medical school in Scotland.
Current status: Answered by Humza Yousaf on 17 December 2021
The September 2019 Programme for Government commitment to develop proposals for a new medical school was paused in March 2020 due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. We are currently considering how this commitment can be implemented or linked to the new Programme for Government (PfG) Commitment to increase medical undergraduates by 100 per year and to double the number of Widening Access places over the lifetime of this parliament.
