Paediatric Epilepsy Monitoring Unit


The Bon Secours Hospital Cork has opened a dedicated Paediatric Epilepsy Monitoring Unit, the first of its kind in the Munster region and the first private unit in the country.

This state-of-the-art unit consists of one dedicated bed with continuous nurse supervision and video EEG recording, located in the Children’s Ward.

The hospital says patients admitted to this unit will benefit from timely diagnosis and management of epilepsy, all done in a safe environment and supervised by highly trained Paediatric nurses and Neurophysiologists.

“The launch of this unit was possible thanks to the joint effort of our Consultant Paediatric Neurologist, Dr. Niamh Lynch and the Neurophysiology Department, led by Dr. Peter Kinirons.”
