HSE must continue to advance plans to deliver a Primary Care Centre for Swords

Fine Gael TD for Dublin Fingal, Alan Farrell has said it is positive for the local community that action has been taken by the HSE to advance the opening of a Primary Care Centre in Swords.

“I am pleased that action is being taken to advance the opening of a Primary Care Centre to cater for the local community in Swords.

“I have contacted the Minister for Health and tabled Parliamentary Questions in Dáil Éireann on a number of occasions advocating for the establishment of a Primary Care Centre in Swords.

“In the past few weeks, the HSE published a national advertisement seeking expression of interest from the private sector in providing Primary Care Team accommodation through the HSE’s Primary Care Operational Lease mechanism.

“I am pleased that Swords has been included as a location in the national advertisement for Primary Care Team accommodation.

“With such a young and fast-growing population, and as our county town in Fingal, Swords requires increased medical facilities to cater for the needs of local residents. In enhancing medical facilities in Swords, the foremost requirement must be the provision of a Primary Care Centre.

“As the local Fine Gael TD, I will continue to advocate for such a facility in Swords, and I will work to monitor the progress of the HSE’s action on delivering a Primary Care Centre for the local community.”
