The document below is typical of the very serious concerns all our parents have about the Government’s decision to site the new Children’s Hospital in the car park of St James’ Hospital in the centre of Dublin
This decision has been made without any consultation with parents of sick children.So we have a situation were our Government is determined to build a hospital on a site that the majority of parents are totally opposed to.
The frustration is that there are at least 2 alternative sites, The Coombe & Blanchardstown that are far superior. Blanchardstown has enough land to build not only a Children’s Hospital but also a much needed modern Maternity Hospital & lies beside the M50. The land is State owned and the cost of a Children’s Hospital on that site will cost €500M (approx.) as opposed to St James at €650M.
