Tallaght Hospital, is a vital resource to not only the community of Tallaght, but the greater Dublin community. On occasion we are asked to visit the hospital to prepare wills for gravely ill patients or swear documentation for sick people who cannot attend the local solicitor, we are happy to provide the service. Each time I visit the hospital I’m impressed by the care, professionalism and optimism of the staff who no doubt are working under increasingly difficult circumstances. If we are to have a new National Children’s Hospital, and I believe that this will happen, surely the Tallaght Hospital site proposal should be considered.
