Carrigallen to avail of GP services

The town of Carrigallen in County Leitrim will be able to avail of the services of a new GP.

Concerns were raised locally with no GP services in place for a period of time.

However it’s been confirmed that a locum practitioner has been appointed until early May when a new GP will then commence covering the area.

Sligo Leitrim TD Eamon Scanlon says it’s welcome news, especially in light of the shortage of GP’s that are willing to take up rural practices in the north west and Border regions
