Description:
The new children’s hospital (NCH) received planning permission on 28th April 2016. It was a landmark day in the medical care of children in Ireland. The NCH is the single biggest investment by the State in the health of Irish children. Getting to this point is the culmination of the great efforts of many dedicated, idealistic individuals in many agencies including the Department of Health, HSE, the three Dublin children’s hospitals, the Children’s Hospital Group, children in hospital Ireland, and the new children’s hospital Development Board. Minister Leo Varadkar summed up the mood of the moment when he said ‘getting the news that the NCH had been granted planning permission was the best phone call that I have received in my career as a politician’. Eilísh Hardiman, CEO of the Children’s Hospital Group, said ‘today’s decision will positively transform how paediatric services are delivered for children and young people here in Ireland. These buildings are a significant catalyst for how the new national model of care will be delivered’.
