Patient Safety Notice

Statement on behalf of Blackrock Health

Friday 30th September 2022

The safety of our patients across Blackrock Health is our number one priority.

Our three hospitals, Galway Clinic, Hermitage Clinic and Blackrock Health, have received a Field Safety Notice from one of our suppliers, Abbott, regarding implantable pacemaker devices. The notice relates to some interruption in the effective functionality of Assurity and Endurity devices.

We have identified a small number of patients for whom the notice applies. All of these patients are being contacted by our Clinical Team in order to determine whether they need to attend for a clinical review.

We are taking this notification from Abbott very seriously and, while there have been no reports of permanent harm to patients resulting from this issue, we have set up a dedicated phone line should patients require further advice.

The phone line 1800 333 789 is open 9am-5pm Monday to Friday.
