Cork East Fine Gael TD, David Stanton has learned that work will commence this week on the new Health Centre in Youghal. The health centre, currently located at Catherine Street, is due to be relocated to Unit 4, Millennium Court, Youghal.

“I am pleased that work is due to begin on the new Youghal Health Centre. I was advised by HSE staff that they hope that the new centre will be ready and open for business by the end of June. The current premises has limited access making it far from ideal for users of the health centre and its staff. I know I and my colleague in Youghal Cllr Barbara Murray receive regular representations from people in Youghal who are anxious to see improvements to their local health centre.

“I am confident that the new building being leased by the HSE, will be a much more modern, efficient and comfortable premises,” said Deputy Stanton. I understand that the HSE had initially hoped that the new centre would be operational before now but due to a number of alterations to the layout works will only begin this week. It is hoped that works will be completed in the next four to five weeks and the centre will be opened once these are completed.
