Annual Delegate Conference 6 - 7 May 2021
Press Notice

The INMO’s Annual Delegate Conference will be held online on the 6th and 7th of May. 

The first day (Thursday) is a private session, primarily dealing with internal union business, accounts, and technical motions. The conference will hear a special message from An Taoiseach, which will be posted publicly online simultaneously.

The second day (Friday) will be a fully open session, streamed publicly online. It will include an address from Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly TD, with a response from INMO President and nurse Karen McGowan.

In addition to the announced motions, there will also be an emergency motion calling on the government to compensate frontline healthcare workers for their extraordinary sacrifices during COVID-19.

Friday will also feature a panel discussion with four nurses who are suffering from “long COVID” – extreme symptoms of the virus which last far beyond the initial infection. They will be discussing the symptoms of the virus and setting out what support they need.

The annual INMO Awards will also highlight individual nurses' and midwives’ contributions to education, research, and trade unionism, with winners announced on Friday.

Friday’s sessions will be streamed here: youtu.be/nqPTeL0Po7I
