HoldFirm – the HSE’s new campaign
Thank you for all of the fantastic support for the HSE’s new campaign called HoldFirm, which launched on 9th May 2020. The HoldFirm campaign takes inspiration from the words of President Michael D Higgins, written in his 1993 poem, Take Care. Acknowledging the public’s monumental efforts to keep frontline and essential workers safe by staying home, some frontline staff have joined together to give new meaning to President Higgins’ inspirational words, which can be viewed here. You can also view the HoldFirm TV ad here.
There are now HoldFirm colouring sheets available in this drop down menu for both children and adults.
You can visit the #HoldFirm Twitter top activity to see how the campaign has been shared by so many of you .
Using our health service during COVID-19
This week saw some new communications for people who may be concerned about using health services, or are uncertain that they’re operating as normal. Our health service is open for urgent care, and we have taken extra precautions to ensure patients are safe. We have a national and regional radio ad about using GP and Emergency services, and the National Cancer Control Programme shared two new videos about people who may have cancer signs , and people who are attending for cancer treatment
