MEMBERS of the Kinsale Primary Care Team (PCT) are the proud winners of the Irish Medical Times Irish Healthcare award for inter-professional educational meetings.
The delighted team received their award at a ceremony held in Dublin recently.
The team won in the category “Best education project; general practice/pharmacy” for a novel educational initiative that has promoted integrated patient care and enhanced teamwork.
The event has been taking place since 2008 and nearly €22,000 has been raised for Action Breast Cancer over the four years.
This year’s €8,000 total was raised by 150 women coming together to have fun and raise some much needed funds in the process.

PE in Irish schools needs to be radically overhauled and made a core subject in the school curriculum.
That’s according to Clonakilty Labour councillor Aidan Pendlebury who launched his Physical Education Reform Plan recently.
“This is not the first time I have voiced such a strong opinion on this matter and with each passing study on childhood obesity and the positive role of exercise and sport for children, the subject can only become more crucial,” He said.
Sean Murray’s in Skibbereen asked the women of Ireland to give their old bras to raise support and money in aid of the Irish Cancer Society this October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
