Free Clinics to end

Free monthly Blood Pressure and Cholesterol clinics which had been provided by the Irish Heart Foundation in Cork for the past 20 years will stop in 2012.

The Foundation says it’s due to a shortage of funding.

Thousands of people in the City Centre, Midleton, Carrigaline, Ballinlough, and Farranree had availailed of the free services.

The Irish Heart Foundation says its many other programmes and services such as the Patient Information Helpline, and raising awareness on stroke and heart attack will continue as normal.
