Clarity needed on future of health centres


Clarity is needed on the future of health centres across East Galway, according to local TD Paul Connaughton.
Deputy Connaughton this week called on the HSE to provide more clarity on the future of health centres in the county, including information on which centres the HSE is planning to sell and which it is planning to retain. ‘People using health centres in areas such as Aughrim and Tynagh need clarity on the future of the local health services. At the moment what we have is piecemeal closures and sales of health centres. We need to know what actions the HSE plans to take over the next 18 months so that can be communicated with local communities and allow time for consultation to take place.’
