COVIDiscussions: Julien Mercille talks to Anthony O'Conner, a consultant in Tallaght hospital

Anthony shares his experience managing the effects of COVID-19 in Tallaght hospital. He gives us a first-person perspective on hospital admissions, including the working hours, the quality and contribution of younger doctors, the pressure on all ICU staff, and the roll out of the vaccine.

"One of the things that we have to make happen is that this is the last wave...this shouldn't have happened...it needn't have been as bad as this...we have a real choice to make as a society as to whether or not we end up back in a situation like this"
