Kinsale Primary Care Team:

The members of Kinsale Primary Care Team (PCT) are the proud winners of an Irish Medical Times Irish Healthcare Award. The delighted team received their award at a ceremony held in the Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin recently.

Primary Care Team Kinsale

Their project, entitled "Learning Together to Work Together" involved the design and implementation of monthly interprofessional educational meetings for the team. It won in the category "Best education project in general practice or pharmacy" and both the initiative and the award are a first nationally for a Primary Care Team.

The Kinsale Primary Care Team has been in operation since 2008. It includes both local GP practices working in cooperation with HSE staff including public health nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, a psychologist, a dietitian, an addiction counsellor and the home-help organiser. The team meets on a weekly basis in Kinsale Hospital to discuss and coordinate care of their patients.

The Primary Care Team has forged close linkages with Kinsale Community Hospital and the local nursing homes. In this context, the team has recently organised a very successful conference in Actons Hotel with the nurses and care-assistants of Kinsale Community Hospital and the staff of Cramers Court and Haven Bay to promote best primary care practice in dementia care.
