SIREN is a four year programme of research funded by the Health Research Board (HRB).
The official title for the programme is “Study of the Impact of Reconfiguration on Emergency
and Urgent Care Networks” (SIREN). The aim of the project is to describe and evaluate the
development and performance of different emergency and urgent care systems (EUCS) in
Ireland, the outcome of which is to produce a framework for the future evaluation of EUCS
in this country. This is a four year investment in quantitative and qualitative research carried
out by a consortium of University College Cork, Trinity College Dublin, Royal College of
Surgeons in Ireland, and the University of Sheffield.
We are currently organising a public meeting series entitled ‘Urgent and Emergency Care in
Ireland: Where are we now and where are we going?’ The aim of these meetings is to
disseminate the main findings from our research at both regional and county level and to
hear the views expressed by the key stakeholders. Stakeholders include patients, clinicians,
service providers, advocates and policy makers.
You are cordially invited to attend the second Public Meeting of this series, which will be
held in Limerick City. The meeting will be held at The Castletroy Park Hotel, Dublin Road,
Limerick on 18th April, from 18:15 to 19:45. There will be tea and coffee on arrival from
