At least two years before long anticipated centre will be up and running 

Senator Ged Nash has slammed what he says are “unacceptable delays” in getting the long-announced new Bettystown Primary Care Centre up and running. 

“The HSE stated in a reply to a Parliamentary Question that they are still in negotiations with a developer on housing this much needed facility” he said. 

He was also told that the internal sign-off on the proposed layout of the new centre, which was announced many years ago, is scheduled to take place on the 10th September. 

“While this is welcome news, we will still have to wait for the lease to be agreed before planning can be lodged” Nash said.

“Following that, the HSE said that ‘planning, tendering and construction’ is expected to take a further 15 months. 

“Based on this timeline, my best guess is that it will be at least another two years before this long anticipated new centre for the people of East Meath will be up and running. 

“This project has been dogged by delay after delay. More urgency needs to be injected into the process and the timeline needs to be brought forward now.”
