The Arklow Primary Care Centre has been officially opened by Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly T.D. The launch was attended by members of the Arklow community and local councillors.
Speaking about the new centre, Minister Donnelly said;
“ECC is a significant investment in community healthcare services in the HSE, aiming to provide more services closer to people’s homes, and provide extra services for older people, or people who live with long-term health conditions.”
“94 Community Healthcare Networks, 21 Community Specialist Teams for older persons and 21 Chronic Disease Community Specialist Teams have been established, and 21 community intervention teams are now in place with national coverage. Community diagnostic services provided over 253,000 scans to patients in 2022.”
“The national Enhanced Community Care programme is at its core a reform programme, representing an investment of €240 million to develop and enhance care in the community. It has been developed under the Sláintecare Programme to ensure all HSE primary and community care services work together effectively”.
A full list of services were previously confirmed which include Public Health Nursing, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech & Language Therapy, Psychology, Dental, GP services and much more.
