A Thank You Message from HSE Services, Management and Staff

Members of the public and all emergency service providers are included as recipients of a message of thanks from the HSE in the Cork / Kerry region for their actions during this week’s red weather alerts.

HSE services across Cork and Kerry wish to thank members of the public for their understanding and support this week as staff rearranged services and appointments due to the weather warnings.

This helped keep the entire community safe, and made sure that both staff and the public could follow the warnings to remain indoors.

All acute and community services have returned to normal and any appointments cancelled are being  rescheduled.

Appointments Rescheduled  

All Covid-19 vaccination centres and test centres across the two counties are now open and any appointments for ‘the emergency’ have already been rescheduled.

“We will be in direct contact with people to reschedule other appointments,” said the message from HSE Services in the Cork / Kerry area.

“We would like to repeat our thanks to other agencies for their work during Storm Barra, including the county councils, the fire services, An Garda Síochána, Civil Defence and the Irish Red Cross.

Reaching Vulnerable Patients

“Their work yesterday enabled some of our critical staff to get to work when they might not have been able to do so. They also allowed some of our staff to reach vulnerable patients for essential appointments and visits in the community which could not be cancelled.

“We would also like to thank all HSE staff in the region, who once again have kept vital, life-saving services available in difficult circumstances.”
