Requested test results MUST be emailed to: neuropas@beaumont.ie in advance of the patient’s transfer to Beaumont.

2- Commitment for repatriation form:

Download and complete the form with the name of the Consultant Surgeon or Physician who will be accepting care of your patient back once their management is completed in Beaumont.
