Description:
Paediatric surgery services in Dublin are currently provided by four consultant paediatric surgeons (including one vacant post - Professor Guiney) in three hospitals - Our Lady's Hospital, Crumlin, the Children's Hospital, Temple Street and Tallaght Hospital. Outside of Dublin, consultant general surgeons perform non-specialist paediatric surgery and almost all neonatal surgery and specialist paediatric surgery is referred to the paediatric surgeons in Dublin. Paediatric urology in Our Lady's Hospital, Crumlin is provided by the four paediatric surgeons who have commitments to the hospital. In Temple Street Hospital, paediatric urology services are provided by two consultant adult urologists with an interest in paediatric urology. In Tallaght Hospital, paediatric urology services are predominantly provided by one of the paediatric surgeons and toa lesser extent by one of the adult urologists who has a designated special interest in paediatric urology. The three separate paediatric surgery units each producing an on-call service are supported by a complement of 20 junior doctors. Due to the fragmented nature of the service, recognition for higher specialist training has been limited in the past. The committee has been informed by the Irish paediatric surgeons group that the Specialist Advisory Committee (Paediatric Surgery) in two visitations to Dublin recently have criticised the division of specialist paediatric surgery in terms of training of paediatric surgeons. While a review of these matters is outside the remit of this committee, its recommendations if implemented should lead to improved training.
