The HSE claims the service has no waiting list at present.

The HSE says anyone in the Ballinamore area of Leitrim who wants to access the Day Care Service at the local Primary Care Centre should contact their local Public Health Nurse.

The statement comes following concerns that the new service at the centre which began this week might not be able to carer for all of the people who'd like to avail of it.

A Day Care service hasn't been available since the centre first opened seven years ago, but when facilities at Arus Carolan in Mohill were deemed no longer fit for purpose in recent months it was decided to refer the clients to Ballinamore instead.

The Chairperson of the Ballinamore Area Community Council said this week she'd like to see the centre operate five days a week so that it could cater for people from both Ballinamore and Mohill.

The HSE statement says that the service previously based at Arus Carolan is, and always has been, available to people form Ballinamore and the surrounding area.

It says the decision to re-open the service in the Ballinamore area was taken in the best interests of those people using it because it meets all Infection Prevention and Control guidelines.

The HSE says the service currently has no waiting list, and anyone who wants to avail of it will be referred by their Public Health nurses if they make contact with them.
