Enough is Enough: 'I hired a security firm to get him out'

Oct 18, 2019 884

Description:

All this week Newstalk we're saying Enough is Enough with the Government of Ireland's No Excuses campaign. Reporter Aideen Finnegan has spoken to three brave people who've suffered in intimate relationships. Some of these stories may be distressing for some listeners. Priscilla Grainger is a survivor of an abusive relationship. She and her daughter, Ainie, set up the group Stop Domestic Violence in Ireland and they now help other women and men. Their story has been the subject of a play that ran at the Dublin Fringe Festival last month called Some Names Have Been Changed. John* says the myth that men can't be victims of abuse meant it took him a long time to even realise that it was happening to him. Not only that, but when he actually sought help, the system didn’t see him as a victim either. Shaneda Daly is a survivor of child sexual abuse at the hands of her father. He went to jail in 2011 and since then Shaneda supports hundreds of others through the group she co-founded: “Survivors Side by Side’. If you've been affected by any of the above, there are support services available. One in Four supports adult survivors of child sexual abuse. AnyMan supports male victims of abuse. Women's Aid also's help and advice to women who have, or are, being abused by partners or former partners. The Dublin Rape Crisis Centre offers support to survivors of sexual violence. They can also help put you in touch with your local Rape Crisis Centre. If you need someone to talk to, you can contact the Samaritans'  helpline.   *John is not his real name and his voice has been disguised.

Cervical cancer survivors hit out at HSE over expert panel review

Jun 28, 2019 1923

Description:

It's still not known how more than 1000 cancer sufferers will receive the results of an independent audit of their cervical smears. The HSE is being criticised by survivors over what they say is a lack of communication around delays to the review. The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in London was commissioned to carry out the audit in May 2018. However the logistical operation of gathering patient consent and collecting the individual slides from up to 16 labs meant RCOG only began reviewing the smear tests in February. Personalised individual reports are due to be disclosed from September but the means of delivering that information to the women has not been established. This podcast is an extended version of the report broadcast on today's Pat Kenny Show. Lorraine Walsh, board member of the 221+ patient advocacy group, lifts the lid on the life-changing effects of cervical cancer and how women are suffering in silence. The long term impacts include lymphedema (a painful condition which results after lymph nodes are removed as part of cancer treatment) and couples being prevented from ever having a sex life again, as a result of internal radiation or part removal of the cervix. We hear the experiences of anxious women awaiting their RCOG audit results - while lab manager at the National Maternity Hospital, Marie Culliton, explains the RCOG review process and whether it will tell us if the cancers could have been prevented.
