The Family Forum at Children’s Health Ireland (CHI) was set up to provide a platform to share ideas, listen and work as partners in care, with our families, to make Children’s Health Ireland a world renowned service for children, young people and their families.

What we’ve been up to

We have held two Family Forum meetings and continue to recruit new members to join our 3rd Family Forum to be held virtually on 2nd March 2022 10:30am-1pm. We have taken the valuable feedback received from our families at our meeting in December 2021 which is helping us shape our agenda for our next Forum in March 2022.

The Forum provides opportunities to meet other parents/guardian/caregivers/past patients who all have the same aim to help CHI deliver a service in line with our CHI mission vision and values where the voices of children, young people and their families are valued participants in decision making and innovation for the future in CHI. We want to establish an inclusive representation on the Family Forum that encompasses all voices across Irish society.
