Primary Care Facility for Boyle
Construction of the new Primary Care facility in Boyle should create “a jobs boost” to the area, that’s according to Local Government TD, Frank Feighan who has welcomed the development of the state-of-the-art Primary Care Centre for Boyle and surrounding locality.
“When complete, the 17,000 square foot two-storey Primary Care Centre, currently being developed on the grounds of the Plunkett Nursing Home, will include GP suites, consulting rooms, physiotherapy and occupational therapy suites along with a separate dental wing.
“Once complete, this major development will ensure that the local community has improved access to a greater range of health services within their own community.
“Primary care is central to this Government’s policy to deliver an integrated and cost-effective healthcare system focussing on delivering more care in the community, including preventative care. Up to 95% of people’s day-to-day health and social care needs can be provided in a community setting.
The development of this Centre in Boyle continues to make significant strides with plans for the project recently lodged by the HSE with Roscommon County Council.
Deputy Feighan also expressed his delight that the construction of this project, when it goes ahead, will also provide a welcome jobs boost for the town of Boyle
