“Through canvasses, public meetings, and engagement with local health authorities, this is the culmination of many years of hard work and engagement that will transform local healthcare provision for thousands in the Slieve Gullion area"

Speaking in advance of the formal opening of Meigh surgery, Mickey Brady added “For many years Sinn Féin in Newry & Armagh have been working tirelessly to open this surgery for the people of South Armagh. The opening of this modern, accessible and high-quality facility will mark a turning point for local GP services.

“Despite ongoing and savage attacks on our public services from a Tory government in London, and their partners in austerity, the DUP, Sinn Féin continues to defend and invest in our local community while delivering public services for all.”
