I’m delighted to hear that the Sandyford based company, Sláinte Healthcare will create 80 new jobs.
Labour TD for Dublin South, Minister Alex White has warmly welcomed this week’s announcement by the Sandyford based company, Sláinte Healthcare that it will create 80 new jobs.
“The 80 new roles are in addition to the 40 jobs Sláinte Healthcare has already created in Ireland this year. The jobs will be created in software engineering, testing, business analysis, client administration, finance and marketing.
“Headquartered in the Beacon South Quarter in Sandyford, Sláinte Healthcare develops new technology for the healthcare sector resulting in better care for patients.
“Sláinte Healthcare has been working with the Health Innovation Hub as part of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs. The Health Innovation Hub allows for collaboration between businesses and the health system, resulting in improvements in healthcare and job creation.
“Advances in technology will help us keep people healthy, and keep patients where they want to be, in a primary care setting, in their community and with family.
“Last week, Ireland’s eHealth Strategy was published which seeks to modernise the way we treat patients locally. It’s fantastic to see a local company like Sláinte Healthcare paving the way for the development of eHealth in Ireland resulting in more jobs and an improved health service. I’d like to wish Sláinte Healthcare continued success in their work.”

I’m hiring a new Secretarial Assistant to work in my Churchtown constituency office. The role will involve the administrative organisation of the constituency office affairs including a full range of secretarial duties and direct communication with constituents and correspondents.
The government approved the General Scheme of the required legislation at its meeting on Tuesday of this week.
“This decision firms up the budget announcement made in October 2013 to introduce free GP access to all children aged five and under, benefiting approximately 240,000 children.
“Free GP services for children aged five and under is the first step in meeting the government’s commitment to securing universal access to GP services without fees for all our citizens.
“Today’s decision is a significant advance for families with young children. It is also a vital public health initiative, beginning our progress towards universal access to primary care.
“The future viability of our healthcare system requires a radical adjustment of resources towards primary care – care and treatment in the community. This is where we can best implement preventative healthcare strategies, ensuring that our system is not there just to treat people when they are ill, but that it also works to keep people healthy.
“We need to invest now in order to curtail costs in the future.The Labour Party has long championed the principle of universal access to GP care and now, along with our Coalition partners, we are progressing this significant and historic initiative.”
