Primary Care Centre to go to tender
The construction project for the new Primary Care Centre in Boyle is due to go to tender in early 2015, according to Roscommon/South Leitrim TD, Frank Feighan.
“Roscommon Council granted planning permission earlier this year for the state-of-the-art Primary Care Centre and I understand that the project build will go out to tender early next year.
“The project will see the construction of a 17,000 square foot two storey Primary Health Care Centre on the grounds of the Plunkett Nursing Home.
“The multi-purpose facility will incorporate GP suites, consulting rooms, physiotherapy and occupational therapy suites along with a separate dental wing.
“Once complete, this major development will ensure that local communities have improved access to a greater range of health services on their doorstep.
“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 construction of this Boyle project will also provide a welcome jobs boost for North Roscommon.”
