In 2012, the Irish Government announced its intention to develop a host of Primary Care Centres at a number of strategic locations across Ireland with a capital value of over €140 million. This investment was central to a broader €2.25 billion Infrastructure Stimulus Package being introduced by the then Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, Brendan Howlin TD. Initially, 35 locations were identified for the for PCC sites. From this list, 14 locations were selected and developed by the HSE to be brought through to a preliminary design and statutory planning process.
