UPMC Pat CartonPatrick Carton, orthopaedic consultant at UPMC Whitfield, the largest private hospital in the South East, has been awarded a prestigious Honorary Fellowship by the World Society of Sport and Exercise Medicine.

Mr. Carton received the award in recognition of his outstanding contribution to sports medicine and, in particular, the area of surgical management. He has been a full-time consultant at UPMC Whitfield since 2008, and is an internationally renowned specialist in hip and knee replacement surgery.

He has also worked internationally, training surgeons in hip resurfacing and keyhole surgery, and pioneered a technique known as “labral cuff refixation,” which involves removing harmful bone spurs from around the hip joint to prevent arthritis.

David Beirne, chief executive officer at UPMC Whitfield, says: “This recognition of Patrick Carton’s significant contribution to sport and exercise medicine is thoroughly deserved. Patrick has been providing outstanding care to patients in need of hip or knee surgery nationwide for over 10 years, as well as leading the way in cutting-edge surgical research.”

UPMC Whitfield has over 50 expert consultants working across a range of specialties including: radiotherapy; cardiology; orthopaedics; ophthalmology; oncology / haematology; radiology; ear, nose and throat; gynaecology; urology and general surgery. These are supported by a wider team of 180 dedicated medical, nursing and administration staff to ensure the 70-bed hospital offers patients the right care, in the right way, at the right time – in a first-class facility that is close to home.

The UPMC Whitfield campus is operated by UPMC, the international not-for-profit healthcare company that is transforming the way health care is provided. Already trusted by millions of patients across the world, the company operates more than 40 hospitals, as well as 600 doctors' offices and outpatient sites, and is now delivering this global expertise to those living in the South East of Ireland.

Home Instead Keeping WarmThe Christmas period gives us the opportunity to spend more time with our family and friends. Home Instead Senior Care is advising over the holiday season to keep an eye out for tell tale signs that our elderly parents or relatives may need more help.

Danette Connolly, Director of Care at Home Instead Senior Care, Waterford said, “Over the holiday season we tend to spend more time with our parents, grandparents or senior relatives so it is a good opportunity to make sure that are looking after themselves properly, have sufficient food and heat and are safe in their homes.”

The warning signs that indicate an ageing parent or relative may need more help at home include:

  • Do they seem to be eating well or is food spoiling in the fridge?
  • Have they stopped doing daily grooming rituals like taking a shower or fixing their hair?
  • Are they taking the right medications in the right doses at the right times?
  • Does their car have new scratches or dents?
  • Is mail or newspapers piling up without being read?
  • Are they using furniture, towel bars or shower curtains to pull themselves up to stand?

As you go home again over the festive period be aware of the things that may be changing for your senior relatives.  Be ready to spot the signs, have those tough conversations and help them get the support they need to remain happy and safe in their own home as long as possible.

Home Instead Senior Care provides services to seniors in their own homes and is approved by the HSE. Its CAREgivers help clients maintain their independence by assisting them with activities of daily living such as personal care, meal preparation, laundry, shopping, and light housekeeping.

O Leary Insurances Details

Directors and Officers:

Are your directors and officers covered against wrongful acts, defamation, and frivolous lawsuits Legal expenses cover is available but is generally only up to a small limit of €100,000 & may not be sufficient for your needs. Why not consider a purpose made D&O policy to offer protection and piece of mind if things go awry.

Employment Practices Liability:

Do you have a policy in place to deal with employee-related issues and grievances? These types of legal actions can be protracted and costly to a small business, and anyone who employs staff would be making an excellent business decision by considering a policy in this area if they don’t already have one.

Crime Cover:

Are you covered against theft, crime or dishonesty against your business? Crime is a major consideration in recent times for virtually any conscientious business owner, especially third-party computer and funds transfer fraud in the current digital age – are you covered?


If your business is impacted by a cyber hack or ransom attack, do you have a contingency plan and good insurance cover in place? Modern Cyber policies offer health checks on your IT framework ensuring it is secure and fit for purpose along with a comprehensive advisory service for when things can, and do, go wrong.


Do you have a property policy in place, to cover your premises for perils such as fire, storm, flood etc? This is a very worthwhile cover to consider if you operate out of a premises to ensure you are protected against such threats.

Business Interruption:

In the event that disaster strikes, example a fire damages your building and forces you to close, are you covered for the financial loss that ensues until you get yourself back up and running, be it repairing your current premises or relocating to a new building (property insurance would only cover the physical damage and not the resultant loss of earnings).

Professional Indemnity:

Do you offer professional advisory services in exchange for a fee? If you do - a PI or Errors and Omissions policy is paramount in the event of a claim arising out of the course of your professional services to your clients.
