Tallaght Children’s Hospital reopening tomorrow without full acute services

Some acute services at the Children’s Hospital in Tallaght, which came to a standstill in March due to Covid-19, will reopen tomorrow morning with limited services.

According to Children’s Health Ireland, the hospital will redirect critically injured children and children in need of pediatric surgical to emergency departments at Crumlin and Temple Street.

Tallaght Hospital will have 24/7 emergency care unit, medical inpatients, day case surgery, medicine, x-rays and outpatients from tomorrow.

In March, acute services for children were temporarily relocated from Tallaght to Crumlin and Temple Street in view of the Covid expansion and child safety.

The CHI said that they are accelerating some of their original plans to integrate inpatient surgery, neurosurgery and day surgery, as well as a city-wide approach across Crumlin, Tallat and Temple Street to access medical access for other services.

Thallaght Hospital plans to open a new outpatient and emergency care center in 2021 as part of the new national children’s hospital structure.
