Mission of Concerned Health Professionals of Ireland
Concerned Health Professionals of Ireland (Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland) exists to highlight the public health risks and harms that High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing (HVHF) and the exploration & extraction of Oil & Gas from shale rock pose to the people of Ireland.
As health professionals, we have dedicated our working lives to serve and care for the people of Ireland. We feel it is critical that the public health and safety of our communities is taken into consideration in relation to any energy policy for the island and particularly with regard to proven risk-carrying activities such as fracking.
We have prepared letters to the Administrations in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, urging the Governments to conclude – from the abundant evidence – that nothing short of a complete ban on High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing (HVHF) and the exploration & extraction of Oil & Gas from shale rock, tight sands and coal seams can be considered in Ireland. We are asking Health Professionals to consider signing both of these letters. Please also consider sharing this campaign with other Health Professionals that you know.
