Suggestions included; giving free medical talks, developing support groups for different ethnic minority groups and the need to strengthen information provision and to motivate and educate communities on their health entitlements.

Discussions took place on this been delivered through the creation of different working groups to focus on various issues, information campaigns to get to targeted people, through peer education so that people can bring back information to their local communities and through creating links with the Irish Congress of General Practitioners.

Other topics on the agenda included bereavement policy in Temple Street Children’s Hospital and the need for this service to be in an ethnic minority perspective. Other discussions were based around the improvement of Cairde’s website.
