The North Dublin Voluntary Forum (NDVF), formally known as the North Dublin Hospitals Group (NDHG) is a collaborative initiative that comprises five member hospitals:
• Cappagh National Orthopaedic Hospital
• Mater Misericordiae University Hospital
• The Rotunda Hospital
• St. Vincent’s Hospital Fairview
• Temple Street Children’s University Hospital
Established in 2010 by the Chairs, CEOs and Medical Leads of the hospitals, the North Dublin Voluntary Forum has been working together to build on the clinical, operational and educational synergies that exist between them. The inaugural Research Conference on ‘Collaborative Lifespan Research’ was held in November 2012 and following on from its success, a second conference with a diabetes research theme will be held on World Diabetes Day in 2013.
