Building a Better Health Service


Under the weather advice is crystal clear

The HSE’s Under the Weather campaign was highly commended at the recent National Adult Literacy Association (NALA) Crystal Clear Awards which took place recently.

Dr Nuala O’Connor, Cork GP and ICGP Antibiotics Lead, welcomed this, saying: “All involved in Under the Weather are delighted to be highly commended for this poster. Under the Weather is all about giving people easy to read content to help guide you on how to treat a condition yourself and how to get better – and also when you need to ask for expert help.
