About this event

You are invited to the online launch of the Patients Deserve Better campaign on Monday, 4th October at 10.00am.

Bringing together over thirty non-profit organisations, our new campaign seeks investment to tackle the serious shortage of nurse specialists across neurology services in Ireland.

Neurology patients have been historically underserved by the health system, facing delayed diagnosis and treatment. Neurology patients deserve better.

There is a current shortfall of over 100 nurse specialists in neurology in the Irish healthcare system. Increasing the number of nurse specialists in neurology will reduce waiting lists, free up hospital resources and deliver real improvements for neurology patients.

Speaking at the launch of the Limerick campaign will be:

  • Mags Rogers, NAI Executive Director;
  • Dr Peter Boers, Consultant Neurologist;
  • Roisin Taylor, MS Nurse Specialist; and
  • Kevin Saude, patient representative.
