Welcome to Public Health and Primary Care
Professor Joe Barry
Head of Discipline
The department of Public Health and Primary Care is moving to new offices on Wednesday 27th July 2016. We are moving to the Institute of Population Health, based In the Russell Building at Tallaght Cross, Dublin 24. We will retain our current telephone numbers, but we will be unable to respond to telephone calls on the day of the move. Please bear with us – we hope to be back in business as normal by the end of week.
Public Health & Primary Care is located in the Trinity College Centre for Health Sciences at Tallaght Hospital, Dublin, Ireland.
Public Health & Primary Care came into being with the establishment of the Chair of Social Medicine in 1952. The establishment of the Chair recognised the contribution of the social environment to people's health or ill health, and the importance of informing and training medical students for delivery of health services in the community setting.
