This will improve access for women in County Clare who heretofore have been referred from the Ennis Ante-Natal Clinic to the Medical Social Work service at UMHL.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Until now, women or their families seeking the support of Medical Social Work within UL Hospitals Group have been referred by a healthcare professional. Last year, there were  510 new referrals from UMHL to the Medical Social Worker . There can be as many as 130 open cases relating to UMHL patients at any one time.“Referrals are made by midwives in the Ante-Natal Clinic, Neo Natal Unit and Post Natal Wards. The difference with the new Walk-In Clinic is that it allows the woman herself or her family member or partner to come directly to our door for whatever inquiry they wish to find an answer to,” explained Anne Hegarty, Head of Medical Social Work Services, UL Hospitals Group.At the new Medical Social Work Walk-In Clinic at the Antenatal Clinic, UMHL, were Ciara Lawlor, Medical Social Worker; Eimear Smalle, Medical Social Worker; Miriam Nolan CMM2, Antenatal Clinic; and Anne Hegarty, Head of Medical Social Work Services, ULHG“In this fashion, we are removing that obstacle of having to go through a professional to access our service. It is about empowerment and we are encouraging women to self-refer for whatever reason or query they may have. Working alongside  women to support her wellbeing throughout her pregnancy is key to positive parenting and family health.”Eimear Smalle, Medical Social Worker, UMHL, said the queries were various in nature.“It could be for example a woman who is concerned about how to manage when she already has children at home. There could be financial worries; family support issues; issues around homelessness; issues around separation or domestic violence; feelings of anxiety, depression. We are available to answer any of those queries or to signpost them in having them answered by other agencies,” said Ms Smalle.The Walk-In Clinic will make available information from other relevant agencies and support groups such as the HSE community services, Primary Care, Community Mothers/Teen Parent Support, Barnardos, ClareCare, ABC Startright, Citizens Advice, MABS, legal services etc.The new clinic coincides with the continuing development of the Perinatal Mental Health Service at UMHL but it is open to all women and their relatives.“It is about breaking down barriers and is open to all to call in,” said Ciara Lawlor, Medical Social Worker, UL Hospitals Group.“We are located right here beside the Ante-Natal Clinic so very visible in that regard to patients and to staff. It is about making the service more accessible to them; so that women can see for themselves what supports are there for them if they want to share a concern.”Welcoming the new service, Dr Naro Imcha, Consultant Obstetrician/Gynaecologist, said “At UMHL, we are closely interacting with patients to identify bottlenecks and to streamline the patient journey. The MSW Walk-In Clinic is an example of the many simple but impactful changes that are patient-centred.“This Clinic brings a multidisciplinary team together at one location so that a care plan can be quickly developed with all their inputs.” Dr Imcha concluded.More about health here.

Another delay for Keystone XL pipeline project

Posted On Dec 31 2020 by

first_imgAnother delay for Keystone XL pipeline project FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Guardian:The controversial Keystone XL tar sands pipeline has been dealt a major setback, after a judge revoked a key permit issued by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers without properly assessing the impact on endangered species.In a legal challenge brought by a coalition of environmental groups, a federal judge in Montana ordered the Army Corps to suspend all filling and dredging activities until it conducts formal consultations compliant with the Endangered Species Act.The ruling revokes the water-crossing permit needed to complete construction of the pipeline, and is expected to cause major delays to the divisive project.Keystone XL is a 1,179-mile pipeline which would transport around 830,000 barrels of oil a day from the tar sands in Alberta, Canada to Nebraska, eventually heading to refineries on the Gulf Coast.The Keystone XL pipeline was approved in 2010 by the Canadian national energy board, but suspended in 2015 after Barack Obama refused to grant the required presidential permits amid growing public outcry from a coalition of Native Americans, First Nations, ranchers and farmers, and environmentalists. Donald Trump issued the permits within days of taking office, stipulating only that American steel be used in the work.Construction began earlier this month in Montana after the company TC Energy Corp secured $1.1bn in financing from the Canadian provincial government of Alberta to cover construction through 2020 – and agreements for the transport of 575,000 barrels of oil daily.[Nina Lakhani]More: Major blow to Keystone XL pipeline as judge revokes key permitlast_img read more


Pienaar gives Ulster home help

Posted On Sep 21 2020 by

first_imgSouth African Ruan Pienaar was the hero as Ulster clinched a Heineken Cup quarter-final home tie with a brilliant 22-19 victory at Leicester. The scrum-half scored all Ulster’s points in an epic battle at Welford Road to ensure his side finished top of Pool Five with six wins from six matches. Pienaar scored a try, kicked the conversion and landed five penalties, including two monsters from inside his own half, in the final pool match. Ulster’s best chance came two minutes before the interval when they surged down t he right after robbing Tigers scrum-half Ben Youngs. Winger Andrew Trimble latched onto the kick ahead and fed Payne but Trimble was adjudged to have put a foot in touch. Flood kicked penalties in the 4th, 11th and 23rd minutes, the first and last coming after Ulster were penalised at scrums where the Tigers had a definite edge. Pienaar replied with penalties in the 16th, 27th and 31st minutes and with Leicester losing number eight Jordan Crane and full-back Mathew Tait to injury, Ulster finished the half the stronger. The pair were replaced by Steve Mafi and Scott Hamilton. Flood restored Leicester’s lead seven minutes after the interval when he landed a 32-metre penalty after Ulster had again offended at a scrum. And 12-9 became 19-9 two minutes later when Morris scored the first try of the match, brilliantly converted from the right touchline by Flood. It came after great work by hooker Tom Youngs and winger Vereniki Goneva in the loose. Flood chipped down the right and Morris fended off a tackle to score in the corner, the try being awarded by the TV official. Minutes later it was all hands to the pump for Leicester, who failed to deal with a high ball and were pinned on their own line, with Pienaar coming close to scoring before the Tigers pinched the ball and half cleared their lines. Ulster, however, kept the pressure on and won a penalty which Pienaar kicked in the 57th minute to make it 19-12. And they were level a minute later after another high ball. Although Leicester dealt with this one Flood’s clearance was charged down by Pienaar who followed up for an easy try before converting from the right touchline. Pienaar then kicked another monster penalty, from a metre inside his own half, in the 69th minute to put Ulster ahead for the first time and Ulster withstood a Tigers o nslaught before finishing strongly. Press Association The Tigers, who will have to travel in the quarter-finals after their first home defeat in the competition since 2006-07, scored a try through winger Niall Morris and fly-half Toby Flood converted and also slotted four penalties. Pool leaders Ulster started the game two points ahead of Leicester and while both teams had already qualified the prize for the winners was a crucial home tie. Ulster made two changes from the side that beat Montpellier, bringing in prop Callum Black and back rower Roger Wilson, while Leicester recalled centres Anthony Allen and Matt Smith and locks Ed Slater and Graham Kitchener. Ulster had won all five of their pool matches while Leicester had lost one – at Ulster – and the previous five meetings between the sides had gone the way of the home side. The Tigers, backed by a vociferous 24,000 sell-out crowd, made a barnstorming start to a ferocious contest and led 6-0 after 11 minutes but Ulster pegged them back and the sides turned round level at 9-9 at half-time. Flood kicked three penalties but, crucially, missed the easiest of the lot when he hooked the ball wide of the left post in the 35th minute. Pienaar kept his side in the game with three penalties of his own, the third a monster from two metres inside his own half, before f ly-half Paddy Jackson was just wide with a snap drop-goal attempt in the 40th minute. Leicester just about edged the half but chances were few and far between and their best opportunity came in the 20th minute when Kitchener burst free from a ruck 40 metres out and looked certain to score – until full-back Jared Payne collared him just short of the line. last_img read more
