The news comes after Sinn Féin’s Donegal TD Pearse Doherty and Cllr Marie Therese Gallagher made representations to the HSE regarding the future of the health centre.
The health centre was closed in November following concerns that the building was not fit for purpose.
Now, it will reopen but no date has been given for when this will happen.
Cllr Gallagher said, “The people of Leitir had been very concerned for the future of the health centre and had made it clear how important it was to have a health centre in the area.
“They had started a petition and held public meetings in order to keep the issue to the fore.
“I am delighted to receive the news that remedial work will now be undertaken on the building during the coming months and hopefully the centre will be back up and running shortly.”
Teachta Doherty added, “I welcome the response we received from the HSE, that the Lettermacaward health centre is to open again.
“This will be of great relief to the people of the Leitir area who rely on this health centre.
“I will make sure that we press to have the remedial work done and GP services open to the public as soon as possible.”
