  • We are fighting for better healthcare services together
    National Clinical Programme for Rheumatology We are also advocating for more specialised allied health professionals such as nurse specialists physiotherapists occupational therapists and social workers We have been part of this initiative since its beginning in 2010 and in that time seven new consultant rheumatologists have been appointed including a second consultant paediatric rheumatologist to Our Lady s Children s Hospital Crumlin Furthermore the new appointments are mainly outside the Dublin region making life easier for people in areas which were not previously served by a rheumatologist As well as the improvements in consultant numbers the programme has worked to have 24 specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapists appointed who have so far reduced the orthopaedic and rheumatology waiting lists by 20 000 Medical card scandal 2014 Arthritis Ireland is deeply concerned at the number of people with arthritis who have lost their discretionary medical cards In a survey conducted by the charity 60 of people with arthritis who have or had discretionary medical cards admitted they had been taken away or placed under review At the time of writing we were rolling out a campaign to call on the Government to take action to resolve this issue and urging the HSE to ensure arthritis patients on expensive treatments such as high tech biologic therapies are given medicals cards straight away Click here for more information on medical cards Creating a better working environment In the workplace we are also working to improve the supports available to people with musculoskeletal diseases an umbrella group including arthritis so that they can continue in their jobs or get back to work Work is proven to be good for your health and it is important to people with arthritis both financially and for their quality of life and wellbeing There is also an enormous social cost
