Connolly- a campus for the 21st century

The draft International Independent Review on the NPH Location, 2011, said: “The ideal location would be located on green space, provide for unfettered access, accommodate research and educational activity, provide sufficient space to ensure the aggregation of all patient care services meeting current and future requirements, and be tri-located with an adult tertiary care and a maternity facility.We agree that if there was a site and funding for such an aspirational location, it would be a magnificent campus. Unfortunately, given the current challenge of funding the one children’s hospital, the perfect location is not possible. Consequently, the team considered those options that were viable.”

We in NCHA say there is such a site.  The site is the marvellous 150 acre parkland around Connolly.The cabinet must choose it .
