Support Group

The four main patient support groups (Positive Action, Transfusion Positive, Irish Kidney Association, Irish Haemophilia Society) perform a vital role as advocates for their members and are represented on the Consultative Council and on other groups convened by the HSE.

Regular meetings are held at national level between the support groups, service providers and the HSE in order to monitor services and identify emerging needs on an ongoing basis. The support groups also meet with individual hospitals consultants along with the HSE to discuss specific issues of concern to their members.
