There are no plans at all by the HSE West to expand the opening times of the new Primary Care Centre based out in Moneen , Castlebar. That was confirmed to the Cathaoirleach of Castlebar Municipal District Michael Kilcoyne by HSE management at the monthly HSE West Forum in Merlin Park.

The newly built Primary Care Centre in Castlebar is open a year now, and while it offers a range of services Monday to Friday, during office hours, that otherwise would mean a hospital visit for patients, nonetheless, at weekends and over Bank holidays or late at night – patients must still attend the often overcrowded ED of Mayo University Hospital.

Cathaoirleach Kilcoyne told Midwest News that in his opinion, these new premises provided across the county and funded by taxpayers, are not being used as efficiently as had been promised.
