Hospital inpatient charges for children have been abolished with immediate effect. The Government made the announcement yesterday.

Previously, children aged 16 and under were subject to a statutory inpatient charge of €80 per day, subject to a cap of 10 days, or €800, in a year.

The scrapping of the charge covers both overnight stays and day-case procedures.

The €100 charge for attending a hospital emergency department still remains in place.
