Medical Centre News

Official Opening 2014

The Primary Care Centre Kenmare was officially opened on Monday 19th of May 2014 by Minister for Health James Reilly TD and was very well attended by local people and members of the Kenmare medical community. We were also very privileged to have in attendance Mr. Ger Reaney, HSE Area Manager for Cork and Kerry Community Services. The opening was a fitting celebration for the Centre that, through the efforts and determination of all members of the Primary Care Team, offers the people of Kenmare the very highest standard of healthcare in one central location.

During his speech, Dr. Rory O’Driscoll thanked everyone who was involved in the creation and running of the Primary Care Centre and made special mention of the fact that the building in itself, while purpose-built to the highest specification, would be nothing without the people who work there and make up the Primary Care Team.

During his address to the gathered crowd, Minister Reilly acknowledged the efforts of everyone involved in Kenmare Primary Care Centre and reassured the audience of the government’s commitment to Primary Care Centres as part of a strategy dedicated to improving patient care nationwide. He thanked Dr. Rory O’Driscoll for having both the vision and the determination to see the Primary Care Centre Kenmare come to reality and also thanked Ms. Peggy Horan for her instrumental role as Transformation Development Officer for the HSE.

The opening was also attended by several local politicians and County Councillors including Senator Mark Daly, Michael Healy-Rae TD, Councillor Patrick Connor Scarteen and Councillor Johnny Healy-Rae.

The team at the Primary Care Centre Kenmare would like to sincerely thank everyone who attended and helped make the opening such a special occasion. We look forward to continuing to offer the people of Kenmare the best in healthcare in the future and we are determined that the Primary Care Centre Kenmare will remain a flagship of medical services nationwide for many years to come.

Keeping antibiotics effective

Health organisations tackle the global health risk of antibiotic resistance as antibiotic misuse threatens all our futures.

Misuse of antibiotics threatens to undermine the progress that has been made in medicine over recent decades. The overuse of antibiotics makes patients less likely to respond to treatment, warned Ireland’s leading clinicians today (Friday).

Launching the action on antibiotics campaign to mark European Antibiotic Awareness Day, Dr Fidelma Fitzpatrick, Consultant Microbiologist and HSE/RCPI Clinical Lead said that a casual attitude to antibiotics is damaging their effectiveness and that we are we are seeing an alarming global rise in so called ‘superbugs’, such as drug-resistant bacteria that cause pneumonia and meningitis, MRSA and E.coli.

“Taking antibiotics when they aren’t needed means that they might not work when you really need them for a serious infection. That is why the action on antibiotics campaign - supported by the Department of Health, Health Service Executive, Irish College of General Practitioners, Irish Pharmacy Union, Royal College of Physicians and Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland – is aiming to raise public awareness on the correct use of antibiotics and to preserve this precious resource for the use of future generations.
