I have decided to get involved and do what I can for the main Munster paediatric unit at the CUH.
Having worked in the CUH for 6 years and specifically in the paediatric unit, this cause is so dear to my heart. If you are from Munster, there is a strong likelihood either you or a loved one has paid a visit to the CUH Children’s Unit. Each year, the heroes of this unit nurture, care and heal our little, and not so little ones. In the unfortunate case where a hospital visit requires an operation for the children of Munster, they experience this in an environment built for adults.
A little about the hospital and why I'm fundraising for it -
Currently >2500 children have an operation/anaesthetic at CUH each year.
CUH is designated as a Munster regional centre for paediatric surgery in the national paediatric model of care. One paediatric theatre can accommodate approx 1200 cases per year.
Yet, up until now, children of Munster have had to share operating theatres with adults because lists are not separated and it is not a child/youth friendly environment. The CUH has finally assigned a dedicated operating theatre solely for children and now with this, it requires funds to fit out the theatre with appropriate equipment and desing and get the facility resource functional and operating. I am hoping to raise funds to achieve this important initiative and I am encouraging others to be involved in achieving this with me.
