An additional 12 HSE employees will be deployed to Tuam.
Sean Canney TD has confirmed that the existing health centre building in Tuam will be the headquarters for the Social Care Team for counties Galway, Mayo and Roscommon.
The Independent TD, who left the Independent Alliance last week and today resigned as Assistant Cheif Whip for the government, was informed of the plans by the HSE.
“I welcome this development as it brings another service to Tuam and it means that an additional 12 HSE employees will be deployed to Tuam.
“The building was recently vacated by the HSE as they relocated the clinic staff to the new Primary Care Unit.
“This is positive as it means that the building will continue to be used by the HSE. It also means another 12 people will be employed in the town,” said the Galway East TD.
