The long anticipated new build medical surgery in Meigh looks like becoming a reality following confirmation from Dr Giby that all of the necessary administration has now been completed and work is to begin in Autumn. Sinn Féin Assembly Member Megan Fearon, described her joy on learning that the new surgery had been confirmed. “The people of Meigh have waited many years for adequate medical facilities and I am delighted that there will now be a state of the art medical centre constructed in the heart of Meigh village. “Public demand has led to Sinn Féin working on this campaign for the past 8 years and there have been various interventions by my colleagues Conor Murphy MP and Councillor Packie McDonald during that period, all to no avail. “On many occasions there appeared to be light on the horizon but each time there were stumbling blocks to be overcome. With the help of local Sinn Féin activists in the area I set up a public meeting which was well attended by members of the community, the Southern Trust and Dr Giby,” the Sinn Fein MLA recalled. “This gave people an opportunity to express the need for new facilities and I believe it was a turning point in bringing the project to fruition. I am delighted that Meigh residents will no longer be forced to attend their doctor or nurse in inadequate premises and the disability access and parking issues associated with the current surgery will be a thing of the past. Fearon added, “I wish to thank Dr Giby and representatives of the Southern Trust who have worked extremely hard on this issue and of course my colleagues in Sinn Féin who supported me in this campaign.”
