The National Paediatric Craniofacial Centre (NPCC) provides treatment to children and young people with craniofacial conditions from birth to 16 years of age. We care for children and young people from all over Ireland presenting with complex craniofacial conditions affecting soft tissue or bones of the face, head, and neck, including the jaws and skull.

These include congenital conditions such as premature fusion of the skull sutures (craniosynostosis) and other anomalies or acquired conditions such as trauma or tumours. Abnormal growth patterns from all these conditions may result in facial differences and functional impairment.

Contact us

Call this line if you have a query about your child’s stay in the hospital such as date of admission.
