A free workshop to raise awareness of the risks posed to babies and young children by blind cords is being held in South Tyrone Hospital on Wednesday 25th January from 10am – 1pm.
Data from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents indicates that 31 children have died as a result of blind cord accidents in the UK since 1999. The children were aged between 15 months and 36 months. In Ireland there have been eight fatalities, four of which have occurred in the last four years. This tragic type of accident is preventable but without awareness or taking action the risk of further deaths is still very real.
There are still some places available for the workshop. To book a place, please contact Orla Clarke, Promoting Wellbeing Team, St Luke’s Hospital, 71 Loughgall Road, Armagh, BT61 7NQ, Tel: 028 3741 2521 or Email: email@example.com
This workshop is designed to suit a wide range of individuals who work with or have contact with families and children. Health professionals or individuals from the statutory, voluntary or community sector; particularly those who have links to families, childcare professionals, concerned parents or relatives who provide informal childcare or have young children visit their home should consider attending this workshop.

Sinn Féin MLA Conor Murphy said the DUP economy minister Simon Hamilton has bowed down to public pressure on publishing the names of the beneficiaries of the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme.
However, he said that postponing publication until January 25th smacks of a DUP effort to frustrate proper scrutiny of the list of RHI beneficiaries.
Mr Murphy said:
“Sinn Féin has called for the names of the beneficiaries of the RHI scheme to be published immediately by the DUP economy minister.
“In the light of ongoing revelations around the DUP’s handling of the RHI scheme the public want to know are there any conflicts of interest as a result of family, business or political connections.
“Simon Hamilton has at long last bowed to public pressure and committed to releasing the names of beneficiaries.
“However, he has put back publication of the list to 25th January in what looks like an effort to avoid proper scrutiny.
“The public demands full transparency and accountability around the RHI scheme, which has been associated with allegations of corruption. An independent investigation is the best way to achieve this.
“The DUP have acted with arrogance and contempt for the public throughout the RHI debacle.
“The people now have an opportunity to have their say on the DUP’s RHI fiasco and their arrogance and disrespect for whole sections of our community.”
