  • 5.3.2015 PRESS RELEASE People with neurological conditions facing loss of vital services - New Web Site
    neurological care services are historically underdeveloped and underresourced with long waiting lists for diagnosis and treatment and the significant lack of neurorehabilitation services which would be taken for granted in other developed countries Irish people are critically dependent on the services provided by charities and the loss of funding under this scheme represents the loss of over 600 000 to an already struggling and underfunded neurological care service in this country Minister Alan Kelly announced a temporary extension of funding to June 2015 The organisations have since been subjected to two separate reviews one carried out by Pobal and another joint review by his own Department and the Department of Health and both have failed to announce any decision to date The Minister has not responded to requests from the umbrella organisation representing these groups the Neurological Alliance of Ireland to meet with him to discuss the situation Mags Rogers of the Neurological Alliance of Ireland the national umbrella of neurological charities said today It is now the beginning of March and the charities affected have no choice but to put committed and experienced staff on protective notice and explain to vulnerable people with neurological conditions and their families that once again they face the loss of critical services such as counselling helpline support and home supports to enable people to stay out of hospital and in their own communities Given the delays and lack of communication with the organisations affected it is hard to escape the conclusion that there is no value placed on these services and the people with neurological conditions and their families who are dependent on them The Neurological Alliance of Ireland are calling for immediate action to extend funding to these organisations given the delay in achieving any progress on this issue since last June
