The new Kirkop Health Centre, with an investment of over one million euro, has been inaugurated. This Centre will be offering health services to the residents of Kirkop and the surrounding villages.
It was stated during the inauguration by Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, in the presence of Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister Chris Fearne, that this is the first new health centre in 20 years. The last health centre to be opened was the one in Birkirkara, in 1999.
The aim of the Kirkop Health Centre is to push primary care so that people can seek first medical assistance at the centres, thus relieving the pressure on Mater Dei hospital.
In fact it is also envisaged that this new Health Centre will also relieve pressure on the Floriana Health Centre. Works are also ongoing on the Paola Regional Centre, and plans are in hand for a Health Centre in Rabat, Gozo.
Meanwhile it was also announced that the possibility is being studied for opening a Regional Centre in the north of the island.
