The new Primary Care Centre is one step closer to construction after planning permission was confirmed for the building at Drumlonagher, Donegal Town.
A four storey Primary Care Centre and Ambulance Station is set to provide state of the art facilities for a wide range of services including GP Services, Public Health Nursing, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech & Language Therapy. Children and Adult Mental Health Services, Early Intervention Services, TUSLA, Dental Services and a new Ambulance base will also be available.
The planning application was made by DHM Developments and Remcoll Ltd, and the centre will be constructed under public private partnership under agreement from the HSE.
Pat the Cope Gallagher TD has welcomed the announcement that the centre has been given the go-ahead by Donegal County Council.
Deputy Gallagher said: “The Primary Care Centre formed part of the previous programme for Government and is already committed to by the HSE; a great deal of preparatory work in terms of this development has already been carried out. I would expect construction works to commence as soon as possible as I do not anticipate any further delays in this project. It is important for Donegal Town and the surrounding areas that facilities such as this Primary Care Centre are provided.
“This new state of the art health facility will be able to provide the highest possible health care services and provision which are required nowadays, it is an extremely worthwhile investment as such primary care centres elsewhere in Ireland have proven to be a massive success,” he concluded.Tags:
