Happy St Patrick’s Day to the Irish Haemophilia Society

Today is St Patrick’s Day and we wanted to mark it by highlighting the excellent work of the Irish Haemophilia Society (IHS).

With the Penrose Inquiry Final Report being published next week we are particularly grateful to the Irish Haemophilia Society for sharing their experience of going through a similar process with the Lindsay Tribunal which reported in September 2002.

In Ireland the IHS worked with the Irish Government both before and after the tribunal report to usher in a new way of working for the benefit of people with bleeding disorders in Ireland.  These are just some of the things which were achieved.

Haemophilia Scotland takes inspiration and encouragement from what has been achieved in Ireland as we await the publication of the Penrose Report and look to the future here in Scotland.
