    ‘Work as done’ Because healthcare is constantly evolving and complex, by looking more closely at everyday work and finding out what actually happens, it allows an understanding of what it is, that frontline clinicians do to ensure successful outcomes. This is termed as looking at 'work as done' and informs us about the nuances, the adjustments, the compromises, the workarounds, the actions and the decision making that is taken to meet the needs of the patients they are caring for. ‘Work as done’ is a combination of expertise, clinical decisions, experience and tacit knowledge. It is

    Kit Tarka, my beautiful baby boy, was born healthy but admitted into special care shortly after birth. He died from the herpes virus (HSV-1) at just 13 days old.

I had never had one in my life and my James hadn’t for many years. But by then it was too late. Kit never received the antivirals he needed to save his life. A diagnosis of herpes wasn’t confirmed until the day after he died. Seeking answers

    As a professional who has worked on ending violence against women and girls (VAWG) in the United Kingdom for almost 13 years, I wanted to reflect on how domestic abuse is still not prioritised within maternity services as it should be. Pregnancy: A time of increased risk Pregnancy is often a time when domestic violence either starts or escalates – the oft cited statistic is that domestic abuse starts or escalates in 30% of cases. It has been referred to as ‘double-intentioned violence,’ as physical attacks directly affect both the mother and the unborn child.[1] The Confidential

    A consultant at St Luke’s Hospital in Kilkenny who carried out unauthorised research on five female patients during routine gynaecological procedures has failed in a High Court challenge to prevent his dismissal by the HSE. Consultant gynaecologist Ray O’Sullivan claimed a decision by the HSE’s chief executive, Paul Reid, on December 23rd, 2019 to recommend his dismissal was “fatally flawed” for reasons including a failure to allow him the opportunity to comment on an expert’s report into his professional performance. The hospital began an investigation after nursing staff expressed
