Sinn Féin’s Imelda Munster has welcomed the opening of the new Primary Care Centre in Patrick’s Street, Drogheda.
Deputy Munster said:
‘The “Boyne Primary Care Centre” will replace the Peters St facility based in the Laurence Town Centre and it is due to open to the public on Wednesday 4th July 2018 at 9am. It will incorporate primary care services and dental services as well as civil registration.
The HSE will provide a full range of primary care services from the centre including: Public Health Nursing (Child Child Health and Welfare and Care of the Older Person); Psychology; Speech and Language Therapy; Physiotherapy; Podiatry; Wound Management; Phlebotomy; Occupational Therapy; Dietetics and Nutritional advice and support and Schemes Support (Medical Cards, EHIC, LTI)
Having raised the issue of the lack of dental services in early 2017 the full restoration of this service to the Drogheda area is very welcome as it means patients will no longer have to travel for treatment.
The Peters St facility will continue to be used by the HSE and I am advised that planning is at an advanced stage with an announcement pending from the HSE.
Boyne Primary Care Centre will supplement and support the extensively refurbished Ballsgrove Primary Care Centre that was re-opened in January 2018 following the malicious fire on St Stephen’s night 2016.
