The Rotunda Hospital invited our GP colleagues to an educational study evening on the 18th of October, to build stronger relationships with our colleagues in general practice, and other allied health professionals.

Prof Fergal Malone, Master of the Rotunda, opened our GP study evening and spoke about what an exciting time it is for the Hospital, with many changes on the horizon, including our move to the grounds of Connolly Hospital and the new Maternal and Newborn CMS electronic health records, due to come online in November.

Prof Malone also mentioned our new GP E-zine that will keep GPs informed of services and innovations in the Hospital.

You can read the first issue here, and sign up to receive the next issues straight into your inbox here.

Dr Karen Flood was the first speaker, and explored the topic of prenatal testing in the Hospital & the advances that have been made in non-invasive methods of prenatal testing in the last few years.

Then, Advanced Midwife Practitioner Bernadette Gregg spoke about the referral pathways in the Hospital for patients attending the Emergency & Assessment Unit.

Dr Naomi Burke rounded off the evening, speaking about triage & pathways for gynaecological emergencies here in the Hospital.

We want to thank all who attended.
