Construction News Image
Plans are moving forward to build a new urgent care centre in Limerick.

The Vhi SwiftCare Clinic within City Gate House in Raheen Business Park would provide walk-in medical care for minor injuries and illnesses within an hour.

A planning application has been submitted for the development, which will comprise of a Vhi Swiftcare urgent care centre and health screening services on a 601 sq m site.

The news was welcomed by Local Senator Maria Byrne who believes the project will help cater for the needs of Limerick's growing population.

The Fine Gael representative added: "The development of such a facility in Raheen will ensure that Vhi customers have the same access to the Swiftcare services enjoyed by customers in Dublin for some time now.

"It will also have the added benefit of relieving pressure on the A&E in University Hospital Limerick as certain health issues can be treated in the Swiftcare clinic. Health insurance is part of the overall healthcare mix to enhance the overall provision of health care services.

"Government is also working to specifically improve the service provided in UHL. Capacity is being significantly increased with a 60 bed modular build under way and a further 96 bed block committed."
