Senator Frank Feighan has welcomed the extra funding allocation of €100,000 in the HSE’s 2017 National Service Plan to complete the construction of the new Boyle Primary Care Centre, which is scheduled to open its door in September of next year.
“The Boyle Primary Care Centre project is currently under construction on the grounds of the Plunkett Home and this additional funding for 2017 will ensure that the facility is operational by the third quarter of next year.
“It’s great to see that the construction of the 17,000 square foot two-storey building is now well underway.
“The facility will offer GP suites, consulting rooms, dental services, physiotherapy and occupational therapy suites along with a separate dental wing.
“Mental health outpatient clinics, paediatric physiotherapy and occupational therapy and ophthalmology clinics are among the other services which will be available there.
“The centre will ensure that the local community has improved access to a greater range of health services on their own doorstep and under the one roof.
