The Institute of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (IOG) has welcomed today’s announcement that the National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street, will be relocated to the St Vincent’s University Hospital campus at Elm Park, Dublin 4.

Professor Fionnuala McAuliffe, Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist and spokesperson for the IOG said, ”The co-location of a maternity hospital with an acute adult hospital is in line with best international practice.
