Camino to Rome 2019
Now that dust has settled and the blisters have hopefully healed, we wanted to say a huge thank you to our amazing group that took on our 2019 Camino to Rome walking challenge in October. We are extremely grateful to each member of the team (and those who have sponsored you) for choosing to support St James’s Hospital in this way.
Heart Appeal in association with Skechers
Can you help us reach our goal of raising €80,000 for the Cardiology Department to support their minimally invasive heart surgery programme? We have already raised €50,000 to fund specialist equipment that will help to make heart procedures simpler, safer and swifter for patients.
A joint initiative of the Foundation and Inclusion Health, we are delighted to announce the launch of our new library (launched by Roddy Doyle). You will find the bookcase on the main hospital concourse by the stage. The library is for the benefit for everyone – our patients, visitors and staff so please spread the word and feel to take a book!
