NB Chief Medical Officer for Health’s visit

As we mentioned way back in December 2012 (well, it feels like a long time ago),  we’re delighted to host a presentation by Dr. Eilish Cleary, Chief Medical Officer for Health for New Brunswick in Canada.  She will be visiting Enniskillen on Monday 28th January and speaking at the Killyhevlin Hotel at 8pm about her recent report on fracking and its effects on public health.

This will be a fascinating insight into the realities of fracking, of importance to all local people and particularly health professionals and public servants.  Invitations to the event have been sent to local GPs, elected representatives and to Chief Medical Officers throughout the UK and Ireland.  Members of the public are also of course warmly invited and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on the 28th.

  1. Sorry I’m unable to attend this event but hope the notes will be made available. The focus, from my reading of the position is that exploratory licenses have been granted with Eire’s up for renewal in Feb 13. and Northern Ireland’s running til March 14. This seems to be concurrent with the EIA but its focus is largely on mitigating the impact of contamination of groundwater and monitoring of seismic activity but relatively little space given in the scoping document to assessing the impact of air quality and noise pollution.

  2. Is the Medical Officer from New Brunswick, Canada being paid to travel and give this presentation by and for the FFAN?

    How much is this costing, all expenses and travel, accommodations, etc included?

  3. Dr Eilish Cleary, Chief Medical Officer of Health for New Brunswick, agreed to give one presentation entitled ‘Public Health Issues concerning Shale Gas Development & Fracking’ while she was on a private holiday to Ireland. This presentation was given in Enniskillen on 28. 01. 2013 while she was visiting relatives in County Fermanagh. She did not ask for or receive any payment for her presentation. FFAN paid for her B & B accommodation on that evening without her requesting FFAN to do so. The cost of the B & B was £79.
