Children's Urgent Care Services are now open 7 days a week

Children's Urgent Care Services are now open 7 days a week. We are open Monday - Friday 9 am - 5 pm. Saturday - Sunday (and Bank Holidays) 10 am - 5 pm. Read more here.

Children’s Health Ireland (CHI) at Connolly in Blanchardstown is a new paediatric healthcare service. It is part of the new model of care for children’s health services in Ireland... providing care as close to the patient's home as is clinically appropriate.

This new facility includes Outpatients Clinics and Urgent Care services which is staffed by specialist paediatric staff, including nurses, doctors and health care professionals from the children’s hospitals in Dublin.

We treat children with minor injuries and illnesses that are not life-threatening and do not require a visit to the Emergency Department (ED).

Urgent Care Centre

Some children may present to the Urgent Care Centre with an illness or injury that requires investigations or treatment which is not available in our Urgent Care Centre. These children will be redirected to an Emergency Department in one of the Children’s Hospitals which will ensure that they receive the appropriate medical care.

We treat children aged 0 - eve of their 16th birthday.

Here are some examples of minor injuries and minor illnesses that we treat and don't treat.

Visitor restrictions for families

Your Child is Attending our Emergency Department, Outpatients or Day Case Settings

To protect our patients/parents/guardians and staff only one parent/guardian without symptoms of COVID 19 will be allowed to be with their child during their hospital visit/appointment to ED, OPD or Day Care. Unfortunately due to space limitations in these settings, we are unable to facilitate two parents/guardians at the same time.

Exceptions will always be considered as previous, under compassionate or special circumstances.

Please do not attend if you have any symptoms of COVID-19, are a close contact or are awaiting a COVID-19 swab result. All visitors must wear a face mask at all times. Siblings are not able to visit and there is a robust Visitor Card system in place. While we understand that these measures will be difficult for some families, our priority is the safety of all CHI patients, families and staff.

Children 9 years old and over and their parent/guardian should wear a face covering when attending any of CHI's emergency, outpatients, admissions/day ward departments.

Face coverings are not required for children under 9 unless clinically advised.
