Letter from Crumlin consultants

If [our emphasis] the National Children’s Hospital were to be located on the St James’/Coombe campus, we feel that it ought to be physically attached to the Coombe Hospital”.

Please note the above excerpt from a  letter by 40 Crumlin Hospital consultants  http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/letters/2012/1101/1224325979425.html.The letter was written to emphasis the priority that the children’s “must be physically linked to a maternity  hospital”. The letter does not suggest that the Cabinet should exclude considering a different adult hospital as the preferred site (though maternity co-location from ‘day one’ is a must, whatever site is chosen).
