Minister for Health Officially Opens HSE Primary Care Centre in Arklow

Minister for Health Wicklow TD Stephen Donnelly has officially opened the HSE Primary Care Centre in Arklow, part of the national Enhanced Community Care programme.

The facility is based on the former site of Boland's Builders Providers at Castle Park and construction on the project was hit with a number of delays as a result of failed leasing agreements.

The centre will now offer a full range of multi-disciplinary primary care and community-based services to the residents of Arklow and surrounding towns including Avoca, Redcross, Woodenbridge and Ballycoogue.

When fully operational, it will offer a full spectrum of primary care services including Public Health Nursing, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Dietetics, Psychology, Podiatry, Chiropody, Dental, Social Work, and Speech and Language Therapy. Senior Medical Officers and a Health Promotion and Improvement Officer will also form part of this multi-disciplinary, primary care team.
