These will include Public Health Nursing, Physiotherapy (Adult and Children), Orthoptic service, Ophthalmics, Antenatal/Gynaecology clinics, Cardiac Diagnostics, Nowdoc (GP Out of Hours Service), Dietetics, Occupational Therapy, Dental services, Speech and Language Therapy , Podiatry, Psychology, Community Medicine, Paediatric Consultant clinics, Mental Health services and two GP Practices.

The remainder will be used by the Medical Centre practice and a private Pharmacy.

The development will also include 100 car parking spaces exclusive for people attending the centre.

Emma Ball, General Manager, Primary Care, Sligo, Leitrim and West Cavan, stated, “This new Centre is very much welcomed by staff and the Community and will be of enormous benefit to this area.
