All appointments for x-rays and scans are pre booked by your doctor, some scans in this hospital can only be booked by a consultant or a member of his/her team, for example MRI. It is important to turn up at the appointed time and if for any reason that you cannot attend, it is important to inform us as soon as possible at (01) 414 3737 or 414 3762. Every effort is made to see your child at his/her appointed time but as we also have to serve the needs of the Emergency Department and Wards, delays can occur at times. We will endeavour to keep you informed at all times and we thank you for your understanding.
To enable your visit to run smoothly we have the following instructions:
- Bring Two adults with ALL Children aged five and under, none of whom can be pregnant.
- Bring Two Adults with an anxious Child of any age.
- We have limited space in our department so please Do Not bring any other children.
- Some x-rays/Scans require your child to fast in advance, you will be told if this is necessary when your appointment is made.
On arrival at the main atrium, go past the reception desk and first bank of lifts and take the corridor to your right. Go down that corridor to the pedestrian crossing (black and white strips on the floor) and the children's x-ray is located on your left. The reception desk is just inside the door.
If for any reason you are unable to attend for your examination, please telephone the above number.
