THE Citywest Covid-19 test centre is today, January 21, moving into the unit once home to Marks & Spencer in Belgard Square North.

In a statement issued, the HSE said: “This service has been provided thanks to the continued commitment of the team including HSE staff, agency staff, volunteers, Defence Forces, the National Ambulance Service and all the contractors working with the HSE.

“We are grateful to the management and staff of Citywest Hotel and Convention Centre for accommodating the Test Centre for the past 16 months, and who continue to work with the Covid Vaccination service, which will remain in Citywest.”
