A Galway Councillor has raised concerns over the future of the Westdoc service in Glenamaddy.
Ballinasloe area councillor Michael Connolly says the full service is not in operation since Christmas despite a lack of public consultation and prior notice.
He says this means patients seeking care are now being advised to go to Tuam or Roscommon.
The Fianna Fáil Councillor claims that no prior public consultation was carried out.
He's questioning why, if there's been a change of policy in relation to the out-of-hours GP service, local communities have not been officially notified.
