Greystones Town Council member, Councillor James O’Sullivan, who is a strong advocate of primary care centres has welcomed the news delivered by the HSE that construction is to get underway on the Greystones Primary Care Centre within the next three months.
“The Primary Care Centre in Greystones will be a location where some GP practices and the Health Service Executive will provide a range of services to the community, including routine GP services and public health nursing, dentistry, physiotherapy, occupational speech & language therapy and psychology.”
“Only a number of weeks ago I wrote to Minister of State for Primary Care Roisin Shortall outlining my views on the project and stating that it should be given the go-ahead without delay”, stated Councillor O’Sullivan.
“The developer of the site, Sispar, has been liaising with NAMA and the Department of Health regarding the releasing of funds in order to complete the project. Thanks to the hard work of public representatives in Greystones, we will be getting a great community facility which will keep people out of A&E and treat them in the locality.”
“This centre has been greatly anticipated. Despite the slow progress being made with the harbour site in general, this is certainly a welcome step.”
“As a member of Greystones Town Council, I will continue to pursue the relevant authorities involved to ensure this Primary Care Centre is delivered for the people of North Wicklow”, concluded Councillor O’Sullivan.
