  1. Save 30% – CALDESUN FOR KIDS

Children tend to be outdoors a lot and it is thought that in a lifetime most people will get 80% of their exposure to the sun in their youth. It is essential to protect your children with a “broad spectrum” sunscreen. This means that your child’s skin is protected against the UV-A and the UV-B rays. The SPF (sun protection factor) tells you how good the sunscreen is at filtering out the UV-B rays.

Some great reasons to choose Caldesun:

  • Caldesun is water resistant and is clinically tested. It is also suitable for children with neurodermatitis.
  • Caldesun contains no Peg emulsifiers, perfume, artificial colours or preservatives and contains moisturising oils to prevent the skin from drying out.
  • Caldesun is particularly kind to skin as it has a combination of micro-pigments and organic filters to protect children’s delicate skin from sunburn and delayed side-effects immediately after application.

One Man’s Story: How Self-Care Can Save a Life

The Dungarvan Leader covered an important story in their latest issue that we feel is important to share.

While the members of Dungarvan Men’s Shed were chatting last week, the men were discussing the importance of health monitoring and sharing their own experiences. One member spoke about the Irish Men’s Shed Health Event that he attended in late February this year in Dungarvan. While Haven Pharmacist Daragh Connolly was speaking to the group, about the importance of monitoring one’s health, the member put his hand up to his eye and his vision in that eye went nearly blank.

As a result of attending the health talk, he immediately had an eye test done and was given a letter for his GP who promptly called an ambulance to transfer him to University Hospital Waterford.

The examination showed macular degeneration and a lump was found under his eye socket. Mr Gareth Higgins, Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon, informed him that the lump was cancer and must be taken out within two weeks. The member promptly had the operation and came home the same day.

He was delighted to relay this story with a positive ending to his fellow Shedders and to emphasise that he believes everyone should know all about the importance of monitoring their health and following up on any signs, regardless of how small they may appear to be. He is convinced that if he wasn’t a member of the Shed and did not attend Daragh Connolly’s talk, he would be in serious trouble now.

 

“This is one of many stories that Haven Pharmacists have experienced while participating in Men’s Sheds health events across the country. There have also been instances where ambulances have been called right away for people presenting with dangerously high blood pressure.”

 

-Daragh Connolly, Haven Pharmacy Connollys, Dungarvan, Co. Waterford

Each of our 54 Haven Pharmacies has expert Pharmacists on hand to provide customers and patients with the essential health advice that they need to monitor and care for their own health. Your health, and the health of your family is our highest priority as professional healthcare providers.

If you have any concerns that you would like to discuss, call into your local Haven Pharmacy today.

As part of our commitment to this organisation and its members, Haven Pharmacists regularly travel to the Sheds across Ireland to carry out necessary health checks and give expert health talks to the members.

Care in the Community – Men’s Sheds

In March 2017 Indepharm & Haven Pharmacy announced their multi-year charity partnership with the Irish Men’s Sheds Association. The Irish Men’s Sheds Association is a registered charity focused on supporting a grassroots network of sheds, workshops and meeting places for men of all ages. There are over 400 sheds with over 10,000 members in 150 towns across Ireland. Its patron is President Michael D Higgins. Both organisations share an ethos of caring for the health and well-being of their local communities across Ireland.

Indepharm provide central funding and advisory services to Irish Men’s Sheds and this is supported by Haven Pharmacies in local communities through the promotion of Health and Wellness awareness initiatives. Over the last year, Haven have been developing strong local ties with Men’s Sheds members and their families.

Since the announcement in March last year, Haven Pharmacies and Pharmacists have provided integral support for Sheds across the country through providing supplies such as first aid kits and attending the sheds to give talks on how the men can better care for their health and well-being.

Haven are dedicated to improving the lives of people in local communities through providing them with expert advice around self-care. The message is to ‘look after your health, while healthy’. Each pharmacy is equipped to advise anyone that comes through its doors about any concerns they may have in relation to their health and well-being.

Haven Pharmacies and Irish Men’s Sheds continue to unite for shared interests in local communities across Ireland. Here’s an insight into a project they took on last November to tackle the rhododendron in Killarney National Park.

 

A Job ‘Wool’ Done…

On Thursday 15th March, Haven Pharmacy and the Beaumont Hospital Foundation came together to thank everyone who got involved in last year’s Christmas ‘Knitivity’ campaign and to announce the total amount of money raised through Haven Pharmacy’s participation.

The Campaign

This campaign called on people from all over Ireland to knit or crochet a Christmas character which would then be sold on behalf of the Beaumont Hospital Foundation in Haven Pharmacy’s. Initially, the campaign was rolled out in Beaumont Hospital. However, after an unprecedented response from the public, it was evident that there was an opportunity for the Foundation to expand the campaign’s reach throughout the country.

Sophie Hart (pictured above), Haven Ambassador for Haven Pharmacy Doherty’s in Beaumont suggested that the wider Haven Pharmacy group, which consists of 54 pharmacies across Ireland could get involved.

A Personal Touch

Each knitted character came with a tag, detailing who made the character, where they were from and why they wanted to support the Beaumont Hospital Foundation. This added to the uniqueness of the characters and reminded people of why it was so important to support the campaign.

A Big ‘Thank You’

Haven Pharmacy released a video to explain a little bit about the campaign, to thank those who got involved and to announce that €9700 has been raised through their participation.

 

“The take-up was excellent. People across the country were so generous with their time and we estimate that approximately 650 characters were knit and sold through Haven Pharmacy’s involvement. We’re delighted to say that we raised €9700 for the Beaumont Hospital Foundation.”

-Keith Brennan, Chairman, Haven Pharmacy

“What was lovely about this campaign, was that it encouraged people all over the country to pick up a hobby that many left behind years ago. The phones were abandoned, the dust was blown off the knitting needles and people came together to do something kind for an extremely worthy cause. The campaign really gathered momentum in the run up to Christmas last year, with all Haven pharmacies selling out of the characters, so we’re confident that it will do even better this year.”

Siobhán Smith, Marketing and Communications Co-ordinator, Haven Pharmacy

Beaumont Hospital Foundation

Beaumont Hospital is a large academic teaching hospital 5km north of Dublin City centre. They provide emergency and acute care services across 54 medical specialties. It is also a Designated Cancer Centre and the Regional Treatment Centre for Ear, Nose and Throat, and Gastroenterology. It is the National Referral Centre for Neurosurgery and Neurology, Renal Transplantation, and Cochlear Implantation.

Fundraising and Communications Manager for Beaumont Hospital Foundation, Sheila Campbell, explains why this money is pivotal for Beaumont Hospital –

“This money will go to fund vital services and equipment which is needed to help our nursing and medical staff to save lives here in the hospital.”

“Outside of Government funding there is still a great need for funding for equipment that doesn’t come under the budget. The fundraising that Beaumont Hospital Foundation undertakes on behalf of the hospital allows them to say ‘yes’ to some of the requests from medical teams and departments across the hospital who are looking for funding for services that are needed for them to do their jobs safely and also to be able to provide improved care for the patients of Beaumont Hospital”

-Sheila Campbell, Fundraising and Communications Manager for Beaumont Hospital Foundation
