"Great Partnership – up there with the best!"
The long-standing debate on whether it’s acceptable for parents smacking children as a means of punishment for their misdemeanours has recently been re-ignited in Northern Ireland as local charity, Parenting NI launched their STOP campaign, in partnership with the Western Health and Social Care Trust (WHSCT). The campaign aims to provide information and support to parents, and training workshops for childcare professionals in Derry, Enniskillen and Omagh. This issue has been hotly debated for many years by the United Nations and other organisations that protect children, such as Barnardo’s .
Smoking is identified as the single greatest cause of preventable illness and premature death in Northern Ireland. In 2014, approximately 16% or 1 in 6 of all deaths in Northern Ireland were attributed to smoking, as reported by the Public Health Agency. Such concerns worldwide ‘sparked’ the introduction of the e-cig back in 2003, the use of which has now become a widespread trend in the UK. Concerns have also been noted over the health impacts of e-cigarettes. New changes have been introduced to the legislation around the sale and use of cigarettes, e-cigarettes and e-liquids and came into effect last month.

Workplace accidents are more common than you might think. There has been a 10% increase in the number of major injuries reported in the last year and the total number of reported injuries increasing to 2,777 cases. Employers have a duty of care to protect their employees at work as far as is possible by taking steps to control or minimise risks. Your employer has certain duties to fulfill in the event of an accident to include recording, reporting and sick pay. An employee may be entitled to a Personal Injury Claim if their employer has failed in its duty.
Although our general health services from the NHS are free in Northern Ireland, this doesn’t cover the costs of residential care homes or nursing homes, the burden of which is borne by the individual who is in receipt of the care, or his/her close family members unless they qualify for financial assistance. Care homes typically cost between £30,000 and £40,000 annually in the UK. In some areas these figures are much higher.
