Killeshandra Primary Care Centre opens

Opening delayed for various reasons in recent years.

The new Killeshandra Primary Care Centre officially opens today.

The multi million euro investment, nearly a decade in terms of delivery and double that length of time in the planning pipeline, will deliver health services to the local community.

The HSE previously confirmed that the Primary Care Team Services that will be provided at the centre. They include Public Health Nursing, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech & Language Therapy, Dietetics, Social Work and Psychology.

A spokesperson also stated that additional HSE services will be provided at the centre on a phased basis.

The opening of the centre suffered numerous false dawns. Planning permission for the new centre was granted in late 2018 but the project was held up due to issues around site access and parking, as well as Covid related delays.
