Goodbye Storm Emma and Thank You to our Heroes

The Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital is delighted to announce that Outpatients is now back running as normal.

For appointments cancelled last Thursday (1st March) and Friday ( 2nd March), patients are being contacted to re-schedule these appointments. The dreadful weather we have all experienced will have a knock-on effect during this week, but we will do our best to keep it to a minimum.

Planned surgery, which had to be cancelled, will also be re-scheduled and patients will be contacted in due course with a new date.

To ensure that we continued to deliver " excellence in the care of women and babies", our staff went above and beyond what was expected. Many of them walked for hours to get to work, while others stayed in the hospital at night to ensure they were available for duty the next day. We are extremely thankful to a number of others whose help was invaluable.

Our gratitude goes out to the National Ambulance Service and other Emergency Services who brought patients to the hospital, the Defence Forces, the Coast Guard, taxi drivers and families who helped to bring staff to work.

Thank you - your contribution cannot be underestimated.
