A HEALTHCARE clinic on a landmark site in Caherdavin in Limerick City has unveiled plans to expand its onsite services.

The Laya Healthcare clinic, based on the site of the former Ivan’s store on the Ennis Road, has unveiled plans to add new consultation rooms, as well as a wellness area and MRI machines.

The extension will be built over two floors and comes on foot of increased demand for the clinic’s services.

In a statement to the Limerick Post, a spokesperson for Laya Healthcare said that demand has increased by over 36 per cent for the clinic’s services in the past year alone.

“Since its launch in 2021, Laya Healthcare has seen an increased demand for the clinics and, in the past year alone, footfall in the Laya Health and Wellbeing Clinic in Limerick has increased by over 36 per cent, with minor injuries being the highest reason for clinic presentations.”

The spokesperson said that “an extension of the current clinic in Limerick will enable an expansion of the comprehensive range of health and wellbeing services, including walk-in urgent care for the treatment of minor illnesses and injuries, with patients as young as 12 months seen and treated within 60 minutes”.

The healthcare provider also said that the planned expansion would enable it to offer services on site, such as MRI, ultrasound, and dexa scans.

Limerick City and County Council planners are due to make a decision on Laya Healthcare’s application by the end of March.
