Since Eibhlín's Inquest

We have had incredible support since Eibhlín's inquest. We would like to thank all the media for helping us in Eibhlín's Legacy, all print /online outlets that shared her story. Huge thanks to those who invited us to do an interview, Virgin Media news & Ireland am, RTE News, Newstalk with Pat Kenny, Cork 96fm, Adrian Kennedy Show, Highland Radio and East Cost Radio 

Massive thanks to all our online support on Facebook and Twitter, we would especially like to thank the #wearedelivering team, for all their rt's, kind words and support in #EibhlínsLegacy, we would be lost without you all. 💜

We are thrilled to announce that we will be working with the Rotunda Hospital in Eibhlín's Legacy, the infection control unit will see raising awareness and education around the Herpes virus as a target for quarter one in 2019. They will be working to raise awareness with staff, patients and visitors using their website, app and posters. 

On foot of the Coroner's recommendations, we have received a draft Learning Notice from the National Women and Infant Health Programme. The need for awareness and education around Neonatal Herpes will be officially released to all maternity units in due course. 

Further updates will be issued as all projects/aims progress.
