Two new Monaghan Primary Care Centres are to be fully operational by August 30th.

There will also be GP services located within the centre with Monaghan Medical Centre, with Dr Barry and Dr Hackett, and the Rossmore GP Practice, Dr Brett and Dr Brides relocating to the new centre.
Meanwhile the Clones Primary Care Centre will open to the public on Jubilee Road in Clones Town from 30th August 2023.

There will also be GP services located within the Centre with the Clones Surgery, Dr Clarke, relocating to the new centre.
The centres are part of the HSE’s Enhanced Community Care (ECC) programme.
The programme aims to enhance and increase community health services and reduce pressure on hospital services. This means more services closer to where people live, especially for older people and people with chronic disease.
Mandy Doyle, Head of Service Primary Care, HSE CH CDLMS said “We are delighted that two new Primary Care Centres will be operational by the end of the month. Both centres offer a variety of services locally in one place and are an excellent example of the Enhanced Community Care programme in action. People can access the services they need while staying out of the acute hospital.”
