HEALTH Minister Edward Argar has highlighted the contribution Bolton 's new £30million medical school will make to the town's NHS.

Bolton West MP Chris Green asked him in Parliament : " Do you agree the new Bolton College of Medical Sciences will play a key part in delivering the next generation of health professionals to meet local NHS needs?"

Mr Argar said: "You are right to highlight the contribution the new medical school will make to delivering a highly trained, highly motivated local workforce. There is strong evidence that when people graduate from medical school their first post tends to be in vicinity of that school."
