Primary Care Centres

An integral part of the delivery of care to the elderly is the development of Primary Care Centres. Primary Care Teams, that comprise of GPs, Public Health Nurses, General Nurses, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists, Counsellors, Nutritionists, Home Care Staff, Social Workers and Social Care Staff, deliver an integrated package of services to a defined population.



Talacare is Ireland’s first Integrated Academic and Primary Care Centre based at Tallaght Cross, Tallaght, Dublin 24. Combining all the benefits of primary care and secondary care integration with health education and research.

Situated at Tallaght Cross in the heart of Tallaght Town Centre, the APCC brings together local GP Practices, HSE services, Out of Hours Services, and Community Pharmacy, to provide health and social care services for people of all ages in a single location.

APCC Tallaght also accommodates a research, education and teaching facility operated by the Department of Population Health Medicine, and Trinity College Dublin – enabling TCD to collaborate with the healthcare professionals and local community organisations on interdisciplinary projects.

APCC Tallaght is located in a modern, spacious building which has been acquired and specifically fitted out by Talacare for the academic and healthcare service providers. The building is easily accessible by the Luas Red Line and local public transport, with ample car parking facilities on-site. It is located close to the Luas terminus and is adjacent to Tallaght Hospital and the National Ambulance Centre.

The Academic and Primary Care Centre at Tallaght Cross successfully demonstrates how privately funded investment can significantly expand and enhance public health and social care and academic facilities.

Talacare was acquired by the Ditchley Group in 2017
