Celebrate Life! Neurosurgery Lunch Appeal

The annual Celebrate Life! Neuosurgery Lunch in aid of the National Neurosurgical Centre takes place in the Westin Hotel, College Green, Dublin 2 on Saturday 21st October.

Attended by former patients of neurosurgery, their family members and neurosurgeons alike, the event is a unique celebration of the lives of those who have undergone neurosurgery in Beaumont Hospital. The lunch is organised with the help of former neurosurgery patients, some of whom also speak at the event. Their stories are always highly emotional and their personal input adds hugely to the enjoyment of the event. If you've been a patient in Beaumont or had a family member who was our patient, we'd love you to join us on May 6th and help us raise funds for vital equipment for neurosurgery in Beaumont Hospital.

Tickets to the lunch cost €75 per person to include prosecco reception on arrival, three course lunch with wine and entertainment.

To book a table or a seat at the event, please contact us on 01 - 809 2927 or email hello@beaumont.ie.

A letter for Mr Donncha O'Brien, Consultant Neurosurgeon:

On Saturday, 21st Ocotber, my colleagues and I look forward to meeting many of our former patients at the annual Celebrate Life! Neurosurgery Lunch, in the Westin Hotel.

This is the fourth year of this life-affirming and very enjoyable fundraising lunch which celebrates the achievements of our patients post neurosurgery and raises funds for the National Neurosurgical Centre. Former patients play a large role in the event, helping on the organising committee and providing their own personal stories when they speak on the day.

But that said, most people simply attend with family or friends to enjoy the celebratory atmosphere.  It’s always wonderful for us to see patients recovering well and getting back to their former lives and I hope you might consider joining us on 6th May - we would be delighted to meet you again.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Donncha O'Brien,
Consultant Neurosurgeon.

Neurosurgery Lunch Funding Vital Signs Monitors for the Neurosurgical Wards

Patients in the high dependency neurosurgical areas in Beaumont Hospital - namely Richmond and Adams McConnell Wards - require intensive nursing care as part of their recovery plan. Each year, there is a throughput of over 1000 patients from all over the country on these wards and the presence of monitors (for pulse oximetry, blood pressure, respiratory rate, ECG tracing) at each bed space (19 in total) would be a significant aid to nursing staff and greatly improve the care we can provide to patients.

The cost of these monitors, to include five intracranial pressure monitors, will require funding of €100K.
