Re: HSE Scoliosis Action Plan 2017

Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin (OLCHC) welcomes the publication of the overview of the HSE Scoliosis Action Plan 2017 and is fully committed to ensuring the implementation of the Plan. This Plan will deliver on short to medium term reductions in scoliosis waiting lists at the hospital.

OLCHC regrets that children are still waiting for their individualised care plan for surgery. We wish to reassure parents that we are in the process of developing a care plan for each of our scoliosis patients on the inpatient waiting list.  To ensure the best possible clinical outcome for every patient awaiting surgery, this process involves a multi-disciplinary approach with the Orthopaedic Surgeons.  We will communicate with families once this process has been completed. Your co-operation in this matter is appreciated.
