The National Paediatric Hospital Development Board (NPHDB) shared the latest designs for the new children’s hospital on the St James’s Hospital campus last month (June 25) with members of the Oireachtas and with residents in Dublin 8.

Minister for Health Dr Leo Varadkar said: “Today marks another important milestone in the development of our new Children’s Hospital, which will be the largest single capital investment in health in the history of the State. The design team has done superb work on the new Children’s Hospital and recently we saw some exciting images of what it’s going to look like.

“The next step is the planning application, with building work expected to start on all sites in early 2016. The first children should be seen in 2017 at the satellite centres at Connolly and Tallaght. I’m delighted that the three hospitals are already working together to prepare for this major transition,” he added.

John Pollock, Project Director, NPHDB added: “As we enter the final weeks of the design phase, prior to the submission of the planning application to An Bord Pleanála, we are delighted to share the latest designs. Extensive consultation and engagement has been undertaken and we have incorporated much of the input, feedback and guidance of a wide variety of groups and stakeholders as part of the design process.”
