Numbers of patients visiting GP is still lower than it should be, people avoiding GP and delaying treatment, collateral damage from #Covid19. But what worries me more is the hidden reason for going to the GP, the cue that the GP picks up on with a patient who they’ve known for 1/

A big theme in my speeches across Western US is the formative impact that Irish people & those of Irish descent have had in shaping modern day Western US. This is very true in #SanFrancisco where there is huge Irish heritage & where we have a vibrant @GlobalIrish community today!
Around 11% of the Bay Area is of Irish descent & there is a large Irish born community too. The people to people connections between the region & Ireland are very strong as evidenced by multiple sister city connections: @sfgov & @corkcitycouncil; @CityofSanJose & @DubCityCouncil
@SantaClaraCity & @LimerickCouncil are sister cities, as are @CityofMenloPark & @GalwayCityCo! Quick shout out to Kathy Watanabe @Carunningmom, the Vice Mayor of Santa Clara with proud #Roscommon heritage. Here’s me meeting with Mayor @LisaGillmor & Kathy earlier this year.

Today I’m going to tweet about our Consulate in #SanFrancisco. It’s the third oldest Irish Consulate in the US established in 1933 after our Consulates in New York and Boston. You can reach us on twitter & instagram @IrelandinSF.
We’re a pretty busy office! In 2017 we issued about 4,658 passport & travel documents - the 2nd highest in the US and 4th in the world. Applicants from overseas can apply for passports online: but we’re still busy with renewals for children & 1st time apps
We also issue Working Holiday Auhorisations which allow recent graduates in the US to work & travel in Ireland for a 12 month period. Irish graduates can do the same in the US under the J12 prog. A lot of our younger @GlobalIrish community in #SF have arrived here on this prog.
