NAI SUBMISSION TO THE OIREACHTAS COMMITTEE ON COVID-19
The Neurological Alliance of Ireland has made a submission to the COVID-19 Oireachtas Committee, calling on the new government to take immediate action to protect existing services, and develop critically needed capacity in neurological care nationwide. Services provided by the not for profit sector are under particular threat due to the devastating impact of COVID-19 on charity fundraising.
More information is emerging about the neurological consequences of COVID-19 with implications for COVID-related demand on neurological care services, including neurorehabilitation. The Neurological Alliance of Ireland (NAI), the national umbrella for neurological charities, is concerned that the COVID-19 pandemic has unveiled the major deficits in neurological care in Ireland at a time when these services are critically needed in the fight against COVID-19.
