The HSE has confirmed to Mayo deputy Dara Calleary that a month extension has been granted for the GP contract in Glenamoy and Bangor

The deputy Leader of Fianna Fail says the news is welcome but has warned the HSE that any merging of GP surgeries in both areas will only succeed if the nurses and secretaries at the clinics are retained.

He says, if in government, his party is committed to protecting rural GP practices by increasing their allowance to €30,000 while also implementing the recently agreed changes to the GP contract and include provisions for its continuous assessment and improvement to make the role of a rural GP a more attractive one.
