National Maternity Hospital

SVHG medical board urges government to approve new maternity hospital this week

The move comes ahead of the cabinet’s meeting on Tuesday where ministers are expected to give the go-ahead to the €800 million-plus project, despite calls from the opposition for further debate

The Medical Board of St Vincent’s Healthcare Group, which represents more than 250 clinicians working across the hospital network, has written to Stephen Donnelly, the Minister for Health, to express its “overwhelming support” for relocating the National Maternity Hospital from Holles Street to their campus.
