Our students are very much part of St. James’s Hospital and their education and training represents our commitment to our shared future for healthcare in Ireland. 


St James’s Hospital also has the largest clinical research facility in Ireland in partnership with TCD, Ireland’s leading research university.


Donations received by St. James’s Hospital Foundation are used to support our main appeals and the hospital’s priority areas of need. Typically this can go to the purchase equipment, improvements in patient comfort, up-grading of facilities, vital clinical research and allows for the further development of our staff.


Donations to and fundraising for the hospital are managed through the St. James’s Hospital Foundation, a limited company governed by a voluntary board of directors.
