A new Primary Care Centre is to be developed in Ballaghadereen.
Minister Jim Daly says planning permission will be lodged shortly for the construction of a Primary Care Centre on the site currently occupied by the Willowbrook Medical Centre on Convent Road in the town.
This will provide modern facilities for GP and other medical services.
The issue was raised in the Seanad yesterday by Roscommon FG Senator Maura Hopkins, who asked for an update on plans for the new facility.
Minister Jim Daly said the HSE is currently in the final stages of agreeing the floor plan for the new centre, and will then agree a lease for the premises before lodging a planning application.
