A €200 million campaign would be the largest ever undertaken in Ireland outside the education field.At €650 million, it is one of the most significant capital projects for Ireland’s health service to date. However, many medical professionals have “serious concerns” about the new site’s space constraints and the capital deficit that needs to be met by the €200 million fundraising target.The Post says that the NPH is seeking over €130 million from the National Lottery and around €17 million in funding from the capital’s universities, in addition to €23 million from research bodies including the Children’s Medical and Research Foundation, the fundraising umbrella for both Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin, and the research centre.‘”That raises major issues about donor intent,” one hospital consultant at Crumlin hospital told the Post.
