New maternity outreach clinic

Portiuncula Hospital in Ballinasloe has now established a new weekly outreach maternity clinic in Roscommon Town.

That’s according to Independent TD Denis Naughten who also said that from next month expectant mothers can avail of all their antenatal requirements, from booking to delivery, at the new outreach clinic operated on Monday afternoons by Dr. John Monaghan and a team of midwives at the Primary Care Building on the Golf Links Road.

This service will mean that mothers will not have to travel to Ballinasloe for clinic appointments and can instead avail of the locally run service.

“This is a positive development for health services locally and I hope that other consultants in both Portiuncula and Galway hospitals will now use the facilities that are available in Roscommon Town, including those at Roscommon County Hospital” concluded Deputy Naughten
