St John’s Hospital, as is the norm, will have admissions from their own medical assessment unit which is fully operational today.”“Where patients are identified as suitable for an inter-hospital transfer, that transfer is only effected once all the necessary arrangements have been agreed between the clinical teams and bed management at both the transferring and receiving hospital.”“On a typical day at UL Hospitals Group, approximately 15 patients are transferred from UHL to the Model 2 hospitals at St John’s, Ennis and Nenagh,” the spokesman added.On Sunday, Tanaiste Simon Coveney promised Fine Gael would “fix the trolley crisis by making further investment in beds and staff”.Speaking outside Thomond Park, Mr Coveney told reporters: “Because of a strong growing economy, we now can make realistic financial commitments to add extra beds, extra staff into the system, and fix, once and for all, the accident and emergency pressures we are seeing in Limerick.”A 60-bed modular unit is currently being built on the grounds of UHL, and management has sought a further 96-bed unit.

Slobodan Ivanović from the Opatija Faculty of Management in Tourism and Hospitality “Tastes are part of the experience that each guest will take with them as a souvenir, so it is important that the preparation and presentation of food be at an enviable level. The primary goal of these lectures and practical advice is just that – to bring future F&B experts closer to what it really means to cook, present food, but also the importance of using food from local producers to make the offer even more special. The perfect specialty will always be the best ambassador of quality work of all food and beverage departments “, said David Skoko.This is a great example of cooperation between the famous and top chef Davide Skoke, an educational institution and the private sector. In addition to further educating its employees, Aminess also has an insight into future quality staff through cooperation with the educational institution.Also this is a real example of how the education system should be, precisely with a focus on school curricula that attach great importance to practical teaching, all for the purpose of better preparing the leading staff for the business challenges that follow. “Such collaborations at Aminess are always well received, because the topic of education and practical work has been successfully nurtured for many years through an elaborate plan of professional education for skills development, workshops and cooperation with renowned chefs from various F&B areas. ” stand out from Aminess.There is only one key to success, and that is investing in quality education – prof.dr.sc. Slobodan Ivanovic”I am glad that for the second year we are continuing our cooperation with David Skok and Aminess on the education of the now eighth generation of food and beverage specialists. Such education nurtures the culture and presentation of gourmet products in the best way, as well as the business of each individual facility, which in its own way represents a destination. From F&B managers, waiters, bartenders to chefs, everyone has the opportunity to contribute to the success of the presentation of the destination through a quality presentation of eno-gastronomic product. There is only one key to success, and that is investing in quality education”, said Professor Slobodan Ivanovic.The entire professional training lasts one academic year, and is conducted through two modules – a module of gastronomy and a module dedicated to restaurant business. Upon completion of the program, participants acquire the necessary knowledge that can be applied in a wide range of jobs in tourism and hospitality. Aminess Wine & Gourmet Nights.Aminess is also collaborating with David Skok through an excellent project Aminess Wine & Gourmet Nights, where every last Friday of the month they organize special gourmet evenings in the sign of creative specialties, top wines and desserts.These are dinners that he has been organizing for the second year in a row Aminess to his two restaurants, and their goal is to promote Istrian gastronomy in the area of Novigrad. This year, eight dinners were held, which were enjoyed by almost 600 visitors from all over the region.”It is a great pleasure for me to have the opportunity to present all the charms of Istrian cuisine to many guests and tourists through this project. Each dinner was special so I’m looking forward to the next edition. I will continue to use this unique opportunity to promote local foods and fish that we will continue to combine with top wines from Croatia”, said David Skoko.The next Aminess Wine & Gourmet Nights dinners are scheduled from March to October 2019 when guests will once again, every last Friday of the month, experience the best of the regional gourmet experience at Oliveto and Half 8 restaurants.Those who want development and who are proactive grow and develop. And such cooperation and investment in quality and quality tourist facilities are the only right direction for the development of our tourism. So simple, natural and logical. If the whole system had functioned like this 10 or more years ago, today we would not have a problem with a short tourist season, lack of staff and quality in all segments. A great and beautiful example of how things have to work out in our tourism.
*David Luiz on target as Gunners are now third in standingTammy Abraham scored his eighth league goal of the season as in-form Chelsea swept aside Southampton at St Mary’s to climb to fifth in the Premier League.Chelsea dominated from the outset and took the lead when Abraham’s looping finish from Callum Hudson-Odoi’s pass was adjudged to have crossed the line before Maya Yoshida’s intervention. Mason Mount doubled the Blues’ lead from close range, before Danny Ings poked home Yan Valery’s cut-back to reduce the arrears.The visitors restored their two-goal advantage five minutes before half-time, N’Golo Kante’s strike from the edge of the area taking a wicked deflection off Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg on its way past Angus Gunn.Two second-half substitutes combined to set up Chelsea’s fourth, Michy Batshuayi slotting home Christian Pulisic’s through-ball to put the seal on a comfortable victory for Frank Lampard’s side.The result leaves struggling Southampton in 16th place – just one point above the relegation zone.At the Emirates Stadium, David Luiz scored the only goal as Arsenal edged past Bournemouth to move up to third in the Premier League.Luiz glanced home Nicolas Pepe’s ninth-minute corner for his first goal since his summer arrival from Chelsea.Bournemouth improved after the break and went close through Callum Wilson, but they rarely troubled Bernd Leno in the Arsenal goal.The Gunners move above Leicester, Burnley and Crystal Palace with the win, while Bournemouth stay 10th.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang went close in the opening stages and hit the post late on, but those opportunities bookended a game of few chances.Bournemouth offered little as an attacking threat, but with Arsenal unable to kill the game off they were able to apply some pressure in the closing stages.Only a last-ditch tackle from Matteo Guendouzi prevented Joshua King from converting a low cross by Callum Wilson, who also fired straight at Leno in stoppage time.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
