Newmarket GP Appointment Expected By End Of June

A full-time GP service is set to return to Newmarket-on-Fergus by the end of June.

Clare Fine Gael TD Joe Carey says he’s been told by the HSE that the recruitment of a new GP for the village is at an advanced stage, adding that the news will be welcome particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fears had been expressed locally that the position would not be filled, as it was last May when the former GP Dr Colm Hackett retired.


Since then, services have been supplemented by Dr Yvonne Williams in Shannon.
