Watch: A glimpse of the new Donegal Primary Care Centre

Handover expected by the end of the month

The new Donegal Town Primary Care Centre at Donegal Town will provide state of the art facilities to accommodate a range of primary care services within a single Primary Care facility. 

The construction phase is nearing completion and is due to hand over at end of July 2021. The equipping of the building is expected to take a further 3 months. 

This new facility will accommodate a wide range of services including GP Services, Public Health Nursing, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech & language Therapy. Children and Adult Mental Health Services, Early Intervention Services, TUSLA, Dental Services and a new Ambulance base will also be available. There will also be capacity to book rooms for other services/professions so that additional services may be accommodated in the future.
The GP partners at the Old School Surgery, Dr. Peter Kardos and Dr. Catherine Blair, together with our colleague Dr. Emma O’Doherty, nursing and reception staff, said:

“We are delighted to be moving into our new surgery in the newly built Donegal Primary Care Centre.  The surgery will be fully Covid19 compliant, situated on the third floor accessed by two lifts and staircases, with full disabled access, spacious parking facilities and drop off area at the front entrance.  We are looking forward to sharing the building with 13 allied healthcare professionals, thus fostering closer co-ordination and co-operation between health professionals across different disciplines and providing a single point of access to services for our patients”. 
Dr. Kardos said “We wish to acknowledge and thank our retired colleague Dr. Marie Drumgoole, who was instrumental in initiating our move to modern purpose-built facilities to better serve our community of South Donegal into the future”.
