O'Dowd expresses disappointment over Bannview GP
Sinn Féin MLA John O'Dowd has expressed his deep disappointment at the news that the GP contractor whom had agreed to take over Bannview GP practice will now not do so.
"This news will come as a great disappointment to all those who have worked so hard to secure a new GP provider for Bannview.
"However more importantly it will come as a shock to the patients of Bannview who had expressed such relief that the matter had been resolved.
"It is important to stress even with this latest knock back Bannview is not closing.
"Renewed efforts are already underway to secure a long term resolution. In the meantime the Health Board will manage GP cover at the centre and it will remain open."
