Work begins on new Meigh Surgery

The campaign to upgrade medical facilities in Meigh moved a step closer to becoming a reality recently as building works began on the site of the new doctor’s surgery.

The new surgery, which will be situated beside Meigh Community Centre, has long been called for by the people of the area.

Welcoming the commencement of the works local Assembly Member Megan Fearon said, “I am delighted that the campaign has reached this pivotal stage.

“For far too long the people of Meigh and the surrounding areas have been forced to have their medical needs attended in substandard and unsuitable accommodation.

Fearon added, “I have been in regular contact with all concerned parties and I am pleased that the campaign is reaching completion. I hope that it is not too long before the people of Meigh are receiving medical attention in the new facility.”

Sinn Féin representative Michael Larkin, who has been involved in the campaign added, “Today we see the footings being prepared for the new clinic and I have no doubt that within a few months the surgery will be up and running at its new premises.

“This will be extremely welcome in the area as there are issues around disabled access, lack of parking and overcrowding at the current premises.

He added, “Sinn Féin activists will keep working on this project until it is complete and the people of this area have the appropriate standard of healthcare facility.”
