The chief executive of the national health service executive reported on paediatric intensive care provision last May. Copies of his report have been placed in the Library. The report notes that each paediatric intensive care bed costs at least £250,000 a year to run. No estimate has been made of paediatric high-dependency care costs. A national co-ordinating group is currently addressing the future provision of paediatric intensive care, including its cost. The group will report to the chief executive of the national health service executive in April.
