Welcome to Children's Health Ireland at Crumlin

Message to Families attending Children’s Health Ireland Hospitals at Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and Urgent Care Centre at Blanchardstown (CHI at Connolly).

Children’s Health Ireland (CHI) is continuing to review the situation resulting from a national cyber attack on health IT systems.

We still do not have access to all our IT systems to function normally. We have limited access to a few systems but not enough to provide normal services.

We understand this is distressing for families of our services and our staff.

We still ask that you please do not attend our hospitals in Crumlin or Temple Street for an out-patient appointment or admission unless you are contacted.

A sincere thank you for the efforts being made and we ask for your co-operation for the remainder of this week.

Emergency Departments & Urgent Care Centre

We would like to reassure parents and families that our Emergency Department at CHI at Crumlin, CHI at Temple Street, CHI at Tallaght and CHI at Connolly (Urgent Care Centre) are open.

As there are manual processes in place, we will be slower than normal seeing our patients.

We are asking all families if their child’s care is not urgent to help us by only attending if your child needs emergency or urgent care.

CHI at Crumlin: Friday 11th June - Monday 14th June 2021.

All elective inpatient and day cases are cancelled.
All outpatient public and private clinics are cancelled.
Virtual and all non face-to-face clinics are cancelled.

All fracture trauma clinics are open and will run as normal, so please attend your appointment.

Clinically urgent inpatient, outpatient, day care treatments (cancer, haematology, cardiac) will take place. These patients will be contacted directly by the hospital to attend their scheduled appointments.

Please do not attend for scheduled radiology appointments unless:
- Your child is a patient of the oncology service
- Your child is due imaging under sedation or general anaesthesia (i.e. sleep)
- Your child’s booking has been made since 14th May 2021

Please call 01 409 6666 for any radiology queries.

If asked to attend the hospital, please bring any appointment letter and/ or correspondence with your child’s Medical Record Number (MRN). This will assist with retrieving your records.

Restrictions in Visiting guidelines

To protect our patients/parents/guardians & staff only one parent/guardian without symptoms of illness is allowed to be with their child during their hospital admission or appointment. You can now alternate who stays with your child while they are in hospital.

Please do not attend if you have any symptoms of COVID-19, are a close contact or are awaiting a COVID-19 swab result. All visitors must wear a face mask at all times. Siblings are not able to visit and there is a robust Visitor Card system in place. While we understand that these measures will be difficult for some families, our priority is the safety of all CHI patients, families and staff.
