Welcoming the new development, Bernard Gloster, HSE Area Manager, Mid-West, stated; “We are delighted to officially open this Primary Care Facility, which will greatly enhance the delivery of services within the area. This new Primary Care Centre will allow people in the area to access a range of Primary Care services within the one building.”
