Minister welcomes primary care funding

The European Investment Bank today confirmed its decision to invest €70 million in 14 Primary Care Centres across Ireland.

The new Primary Care Centres will be built in counties Sligo, Roscommon, Mayo, Limerick, Tipperary, Waterford, Wexford, Kildare and Dublin.

“On behalf of the Government we are delighted to welcome their significant investments in terms of expertise, funding, resources, employment opportunities and a 27 year partnership that extends from construction through 25 year facility maintenance,” said Minister Harris.

“We look forward, with their support and assistance, in the delivery of state of the art 21st century health care facilities.

“One of my priorities will be to implement a decisive shift of the health service to primary care, with the delivery of primary care in every community. I am hoping to develop a 10-year plan for the health service with cross-party support.

“The initiative will be based on consultation with all political parties and stakeholders, including frontline staff.”
