HSE commit to the development of Primary Care Services in the Tallaght area.

The HSE has committed to the development of Primary Care Services in the Tallaght area. The issue was raised in the April meeting of the Regional Health Forum, Dublin Mid-Leinster by local Councillor Charlie O’Connor who also sought the current position regarding the provision of Primary Care Centres at Tallaght Cross and Greenhills Road.

The RHF Management said that:

“The Primary Care Centre at Tallaght Cross is due for completion in June 2016. It is anticipated that following completion of the construction works the facility will be ready for occupation in August of this year. Discussions are ongoing between Community Healthcare Organisation 7 and the HSE Primary Care Division in relation to how the additional costs of operating this new centre can be met.”

In response to questions regarding the proposed Primary Care Centre planned for the Greenhills Road, the RHF management said that the current timeframe for completion of the project is 2017. The intention is to provide a full range of services from this location to include:

  • General Practitioners
  • HSE Primary Care Services
  • EVE Holdings
  • Addiction Services
  • Young Persons Drug & Alcohol Services
  • Primary Care Counselling / Alba Counselling Services
