There's one in Ranelagh built/owned by the Drs McMahon. Lots of complaints about the building, soudproofing etc. My experience of design in Irish health is it's crap. Doors not wide enough for hospital beds etc. But also the design decisions! A care of the elderly facility should not be built using plans from an oncology centre!
And anyway - as a health worker - the primary care centres ccannot work. GPs are supposed to be part of the teams - but GPs are self-employed and lose money if they go to meetings. Plus they are not teams, just a conglomeration of different health professions working in the same building.
Typical HSE crap.
Sorry for the rant, bricky - I've worked in the HSE for 20 years and it still infuriates me. What was it that you wanted to know?

The UK experiment of attempting to remove the 'professional management layer' and have doctors manage patients is clearly untried but may produce a clearer answer as to who is best to manage health outcomes. If successful it may have very interesting architectural consequences as GPs agglomerate to provide 24 * 7 cover in purpose built facilities.
