Local Councillor,Charlie O’Connor has welcomed progress on the newly established Kilnamanagh/Tymon Primary Care Centre in Tallaght and has asked for confirmation detailing services now available and the schedule for the completion of the process in respect of the new development on the Greenhills Road.
A long time campaigner for the development of new health facilities in the Tallaght area, he raised the matter once again at the June meeting of the Regional Health Forum, Dublin Mid-Leinster, of which he is a former chairman.
Charlie O’Connor was told at the meeting that “The move into the building is currently underway and Birchview GP Practise is in and operational. Primary care services will be moving in shortly including PHN services, Primary care Psychology, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Social work, Speech and Language Therapy”
He was also told “Other services will include ALBA counselling and Eve Mental Health Services. Addiction services will relocate from Belgard Road, the Child Health Immunisation team and the area Home Care Package team will relocate from Tessa House in Tallaght.”
According to Charlie O’Connor “It is hoped that the building will be fully operational from the end of June. In the interim, service users who previously attended services in other Centres including Millbrook Lawns will be advised in person, in writing, with directions when being given an appointment and details will be added to the HSE website.”
Charlie O’Connor added that this is positive news for the Tallaght community and he had no doubt that this new development would be warmly welcomed. He also wished all those working in the new Primary Health Care Centre every success with their endeavours on behalf of the community.
