PLANS to create a new multimillion pound cancer support centre are now being considered. 

NHS Dumfries and Galloway and Maggie’s, a charity that provides invaluable support to cancer patients and their families, are currently in discussions to develop a centre on the Royal Infirmary site at a cost of up to £5m.

Colin Smyth, Labour MSP hosted an exhibition on Maggie’s at Scottish Parliament last week.

Supporting the potential partnership, he said, “It would be wonderful if we could see a Centre in Dumfries.”
