It’s reported that two sexual health clinics in the Shannonside region are to begin accepting referrals again this week.
Earlier this month it was confirmed that the clinic at the Midlands Regional Hospital in Mullingar was closed due to regulatory requirements and the clinic needed to be relocated somewhere else before it could become operational again.
However, Shannonside FM understands that local health practices have been informed that referrals are once again being accepted at the hospital.
The facility at Portiuncula Hospital in Ballinasloe had been closed since last September but the clinic is set to re-open later this week.
Laura Tully, Institute Nurse & Health Centre Coordinator at AIT says it’s very welcome news that the Ballinasloe facility is re-opening.
