It is good news that the National Children's Hospital has got the go-ahead to be built. Construction is due to start this summer, and they say it will be open by 2020. At long last.

This hospital was first proposed more than 20 years ago. After much politics and power playing between the three existing children's hospitals, and wrangling over the best place to locate the hospital, the Government endorsed the Mater hospital as the site in 2006. The hospital was meant to be open by 2014.
