25th May 2018 Offaly Rose shows care and compassion on recent visit to Tullamore Hospital
The 2017 Rose of Tralee visited the Dialysis Unit at the Midland Regional Hospital Tullamore last Wednesday the 11th April 2018.
Offaly Rose Dr Jennifer Byrne attended with Mr Jerome Burke, Chairperson of the Offaly branch of the IKA. Jennifer is a qualified doctor from NUI Galway and has a keen interest in renal medicine. She met with the dialysis patients and members of the renal multidisciplinary team during her visit. Hailing from Clonaderig in Offaly, Jennifer was truly at home meeting many patients that knew her and her family before she became Rose of Tralee.
Noreen Galvin CNM 111 Dialysis Unit MRHT said, "On behalf of Tullamore Hospital I would like to thank Jennifer for visiting the unit and wish her the very best in her future endeavours. Jennifer was very keen to hear patient stories and experiences in dialysis treatment. She was charming, kind and very considerate to the patients."
