PODCAST: Concerns expressed over closure of STI clinics locally

Concerns have been expressed over the lack of sexual health clinics in the Shannonside region.

The STI unit in the Midlands Regional Hospital in Mullingar has recently closed as it is not possible to co-locate the unit under new regulations.

There is no STI clinic in Portiuncula hospital either as it closed last September which leaves Longford and Roscommon without an STI drop-in clinic.
