Sinn Féin TD Imelda Munster has welcomed the current investment in primary care provision with the imminent opening of a major Primary Care Centre in Patrick’s Street, Drogheda. The Primary Care Centre will be based in the recently refurbished Boyne Centre.
Deputy Munster stated “this development will include five fully refurbished dental Surgeries and will restore the dental services and clinics that had been removed from the town over the last 15 months. For the past 15 month’s school children had to travel to Dundalk or Ardee to access dental services. Other much needed services such as public health nursing, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy for children and adults, psychology, a blood clinic, podiatry and ophthalmology.
Deputy Munster said “This primary care centre will provide much needed services along with the provision of Births, Deaths, and Marriage’s office and a dedicated room for civil ceremonies which will have its own entrance. It’s imminent opening will be very welcome especially as it will mean patients no longer have to travel to access dental services.
