New GP Coming To Serve Westmeath Village

Locals were worried the surgery would be closed.

A new GP has been secured for a Westmeath village.

Residents in Coole had been raising concerns the local surgery would close earlier this year.

The HSE assumed interim management of the practice on May 1st, under a 'Doctor in Charge' number - it says it remains fully operational and there has been no disruption to the level of service that was available.

It also says a successful candidate has been secured, and has accepted the position.

It expects the incoming GP to assume the role within eight to ten weeks, however a start date has not yet been agreed.
