St James’s Day – Healing Garden Appeal
Earlier this year, we held our first ever St James’s Day annual fundraiser. The day was a success and we would like to thank everyone who donated so far. We still need your help to get to our fundraising target of €100,000 to create a much-needed healing garden for our patients, visitors and staff here at St James’s Hospital. We want to create a special space, an oasis of tranquillity, to help relieve the anxiety and stress often experienced by those with serious illness and to create a welcoming place of calm for our visitors and staff.

Patient Story – Tony Doyle
“I feel like I have recovered 90% from Covid19. My lungs have still not fully recovered yet. I wasn’t expecting to be so weak afterwards. But I have to say that I wouldn’t be where I am today without the staff from St James’s hospital. Grateful patient Tony Doyle spent over a month in St James’s Hospital after developing symptoms of Covid19 in early March.
Tony has kindly shared his story with us…
