Add Abbott Freestyle Libre to the Irish Long Term Illness Scheme

The Abbott Freestyle Libre Flash monitering system was recently made available to buy privately in Ireland.

No Bail For Lenasia Drug Dealers

Leik- og grunnskóla mál í Reykjavíkurborg - Við krefjumst aðgerða

Undirrituð taka undir með skólastjórnendum í Reykjavík og skora á borgaryfirvöld að snúa vörn í sókn í leikskóla- og skólamálum. Nú þegar nýjasta uppgjör borgarinnar sýnir merki um viðsnúning er einmitt tækifærið til að standa vörð um skólakerfið. Við neitum að láta börnin í borginni dvelja í sársveltum rekstri og krefjumst þess að forgangsraðað verði á nýjan hátt með aðbúnað þeirra og gæði skólastarfsins að leiðarljósi.
