The newly renamed, University Hospital Kerry will feature on tonight’s Keeping Ireland Alive on RTÉ One at 9.35pm.
A new major five part documentary series, Keeping Ireland Alive is starting this evening on RTE One. It will provide an insight into the health services as you have never seen it before, as 75 cameras push pass the headlines to tell the human stories at the heart of this often controversial but most vital service.
The first episode of Keeping Ireland Alive will feature University Hospital Kerry midwife, Joanne Malik as she assists Shauna Corcoran as she goes into labour with her second baby.
This first episode also feature: Beaumont Hospital, consultant neurosurgeon David O’Brien preparing to carry out a major surgery to remove a tumour from the spine of bus driver Brendan Flanagan; the National Emergency Operations Centre in Dublin; The Intensive Care at the Mater Hospital in Dublin, where Dr. Colman O’Loughlin and his team struggle to find new beds for patients; Kildare Pastimes Choir, which supports people living with dementia, their families and carers; The Royal Victoria Eye and Ear Hospital in Dublin, where Limerick man Derek Hayes is waiting for a last chance operation – performed only four times annually in Ireland – to restore his eyesight.
