How do I get to the clinic?

Details are on how to reach Beaumont Hospital by car, bus or taxi can be accessed at: www.beaumont.ie The Out Patients Clinics are located off the main corridor near the Hospital's front entrance. Each clinic is labelled A-F and will have the Consultants name displayed. Phlebotomy (blood tests) is located at the beginning of the main Out Patients Department. The Eye Clinic is located at the far end of the main Out Patients Department. MRI is in the Xray Department and is located on the lower ground floor of Beaumont Hospital or in the St Luke’s Radiation Oncology Building. Please check your appointment letter carefully. St Luke’s Radiation Oncology Centre at Beaumont Hospital can be found by following the signs to the lower ground floor and accessed through a link corridor (Turn right at St Raphaels Ward). More details are on www.stlukesnetwork.ie

What facilities are in the hospital?

An Information Desk is located in the front lobby. Facilities include a Coffee shop, Bank, ATM and small newsagent located on the ground floor half way along the main concourse. A Chapel is situated on the ground floor and is sign posted. Car parking is available in the Multi-storey building situated at the front of the Hospital. Parking is charged by the hour and subject to a daily maximum fee.

Is it possible to visit the clinic and/or meet the staff before my first visit?

Site visits and meetings with the staff are not routinely arranged prior to your first appointment however this can be discussed with the medical and nursing teams involved with your transition.

What will happen and who will I see on my first visit?

On your first visit you will meet with your consultant or member of the medical team and in some instances a Nurse Specialist. Further referrals might be made to other services and tests such as MRI and bloods will be arranged if needed. Appointment letters will be addressed to you and not your parents so it is important that we have your correct details on your medical file.

Will the new hospital have all my notes?

If you are a patient coming to adult services from the Children’s service in Beaumont Hospital we will have your paediatric notes. If you are coming from one of the other children’s hospitals we will make up a new hospital chart for you. A detailed referral letter will be sent from the referring hospital along with relevant reports. Please bring a list of your current medications or the medications themselves to show to the medical team at each appointment.

How often will I need to attend the clinic?

Frequency of review will be decided based on your individual needs and we will tell you at each clinic when you will be seen next.

Will I see the same staff at each visit?

On some visits you may be seen by a different member of your Medical team but you can request to see your Consultant if preferred.

On a typical day, how long will my visit to the clinic last?

Clinic waiting times can vary and new patient consultations usually take longer than a regular review appointment.

How are appointments scheduled and rescheduled?

Most neurosurgical appointments are made via the Central Access Office unless you are transitioning under the care of the same consultant from Beaumont or another paediatric Hospital. Medical Oncology & Radiation Oncology clinic appointments are made directly via each consultant’s secretary.

If I have questions about the transition, who should I contact and how?

If you have any questions about the transition you can contact your Consultant’s secretary directly or contact the Clinical Nurse Specialist:- Adult Brain Tumour Nurse Specialist Phone: 01 809 2987 Paediatric and Benign Brain Tumour Nurse Specialist Phone: 01 809 2074
