COVID 19 Response

The Craniofacial Department has postponed all previously scheduled and future non-essential outpatients appointments and inpatient and day case surgical activity until further notice.

We are putting these restrictions in place in the interest of patient safety as part of the COVID-19 response.

We appreciate that this is a difficult time for patients and their families and we are working to provide services in a different way where possible.

This includes virtual clinics (telephone call) for some outpatient appointments and these patients will be contacted by staff in addition to patients that need to be seen in person.

If you have significant concerns about a previously scheduled appointment, please call the Craniofacial department on (01) 878 4883 or 087 625 6857 or email craniofacial@cuh.ie

 (Open Mon – Fri, 8am – 4pm) 

For further information on COVID 19 please refer to the CHI at Temple Street Website www.cuh.ie and the HSE website www.hse.ie

Craniofacial Conditions

The National Paediatric Craniofacial Centre (NPCC) is based in Temple Street Children’s University Hospital and provides treatment for children with craniofacial conditions from birth to 16 years of age. Craniofacial Conditions are complex conditions affecting the soft tissue or bones of the face and/or the head. These include congenital conditions such as premature fusion of the skull sutures and other anomalies, or acquired conditions such as trauma or tumours.  More Information.

Patient and Family Information

At your first clinic visit at the National Paediatric Craniofacial Centre you will meet the Craniofacial Nurse Specialist and Craniofacial Clinical Services Coordinator who will provide on-going support to you and your child.  Following your child’s diagnosis of a craniofacial condition, we can put you in contact with another family whose child has undergone treatment for the same condition. More Information
