MINISTER James Browne has welcomed the news that the HSE is to develop a new Community Diagnostic Service as part of the Enniscorthy Primary Care Centre being developed at Blackstoops.

According to Minister Browne the diagnostic suite will be based in a building adjacent to the main primary care centre building. 

It’s expected that the services will include direct access by GPs to x-ray, CT, MRI and Dexa services.

"This development will ensure that more healthcare can be carried out in the community and take pressure off our hospitals,” said Minister Browne.
