Patient Experience

Patient Experience

The Laboratory in St James’s Hospital has seen huge increases in GP workload, with much of it coming from outside our catchment area. The workload is adversely affecting our ability to provide timely results for St James’s patients and also our local GPs.

Our catchment areas are defined as Dublin 6/6W, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 (Rathfarnham only) and 20 (Chapelizod only). In addition, St James’s Hospital has agreed with the Dublin South Inner City Partnership and Dublin South West to include Lucan and Dublin 2. Parts of Leixlip are also included.

The Centre for Laboratory Medicine and Molecular Pathology provides a wide range of laboratory examinations in support of diagnostic and treatment decisions in clinical medicine and in primary care.

This service includes scientific and clinical advisory services to support clinical users in selecting the appropriate examinations and to help in the diagnosis of illness and the monitoring of the treatment of those illnesses. The laboratory is divided into a number of scientific and clinical specialties and national reference laboratories.

Further information on opening times for specific departments can be obtained by clicking on the departmental links below.
