Whitfield Study DayOn Saturday, October 21st Whitfield hosted the latest in a series of General Practitioner Study Days.

The day featured a wide and varied programme of talks by Whitfield consultants in their respective practices and specialties and was very well attended by GP’s from the south east region.

Over the course of the day Mr. Patrick Carton, Mr. Eugene Ng and Mr. David McMurray spoke on a range of orthopaedic, ophthalmology and gynaecology topics, while Mr. Ian Kelly, Dr. Colin Buckley, Dr. Pat O’Callaghan and Mr. Mark Mulhearn facilitated roundtable discussions pertaining to their respective fields of expertise.

This is the fourth year that Whitfield has hosted its bi-annual G.P. Study Day.

“We were delighted with the response and feedback from the GP’s who attended the event from across the South East” said Whitfield CEO, Paul Lynam.

“We really see the value in hosting this particular event, not just for GP’s, but for Whitfield staff too. It’s a fantastic opportunity to have in-depth discussions on a broad and varied range of healthcare topics, to share ideas and to consider new developments and advances in healthcare disciplines.”

“The GP Study Days have always fostered good collaboration between Whitfield and primary care practitioners and we look forward to continuing the initiative into the future.”

Whitfield is a private hospital which opened in 2006 with the aim of improving the healthcare services available to the community of Waterford and the south east region at large. Whitfield currently employs over 220 staff and in conjunction with more than 60 associated consultants provides services to over 25,000 patients per year.
