O'Dowd welcomes news that GP is to take over Bannview
Sinn Féin MLA John O'Dowd has welcomed confirmation that a GP has agreed to takeover Bannview Medical Practice in early March.
The Upper Bann MLA said:
"This news will bring great comfort and reassurance to patients who had been concerned about how and where they would access GP services.
"Over this last number of months Catherine Seeley MLA and I have been in regular contact with the Health Minister Michelle O'Neill and the Health Board in regards securing a solution to the issues surrounding Bannview.
"I would like to thank all those who have worked on this issue and brought it to a successful conclusion and wish the new GP practice all the best for the future."
