gynaecology and acute psychiatry. Within the medical department the
following specialities are provided: endocrinology, gastroenterology,
cardiology, rheumatology, neurology, respiratory medicine,
haematology, geriatric medicine, dermatology and palliative medicine.
The hospital also has a paediatric unit.
The CRH has strong departments in the clinical support services of
anaesthetics, radiology and pathology.
The CRH has one of the busiest and largest A&E departments in the
country. That department operates continuously 24 hours a day
throughout the entire year. This demand imposes a considerable strain
both organisationally and clinically on the hospital resources. In 1991
the attendances at the A&E department amounted to 43,000 of which
new patients were 3,000 and return patients 6,000.|
