Abstract:
The National Paediatric Craniofacial Centre (NPCC) at Temple Street Children' s University Hospital provides specialist cares for over 660 children annually with syndromic and non-syndromic craniosynostosis, craniofacial tumours, craniofacial trauma, facial clefts, craniofacial growth disorders and facial asymmetry, torticollis, positional plagiocephaly and facial nerve disorders. The centre was established in the early 90's by Professor Michael Earley, Consultant Plastic Surgeon and Mr David Alcutt, Consultant Neurosurgeon. The appointment of Mr Dylan Murray, Consultant Craniofacial and Plastic Surgeon and Mr John Caird, Consultant Neurosurgeon in 2008 brought with it the expertise to manage the full remit of craniofacial disorders in the unit. Before this time complex craniofacial conditions may have required referral to craniofacial centres in the UK for treatment. The service further evolved in 2013 with the appointment of a clinical nurse specialist. Craniofacial MDT clinics are run in Temple Street Children's University Hospital (TSCUH) and at the satellite centres based in St James Hospital and Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin. A quarterly facial palsy MDT clinic is base at Temple Street Children's University Hospital (TSCUH).
