NAI meeting with Minister for State Anne Rabbitte

MS Ireland, as part of the Neurological Alliance of Ireland (NAI) recently took part in a meeting with Minister of State for Disabilities Anne Rabbitte. 

During this meeting, NAI Executive Director, Mags Rogers, with the support of NAI Board members discussed the issue of access to neurorehabilitation in Ireland. Last Minister of State for Disability Anne Rabbitte, the Health Service Executive (HSE) published an implementation plan for the National Neurorehabilitation Strategy.

This came over 8 years after the launch of the original policy document. The implementation framework is a three-year, ten step plan aiming to develop neurorehabilitation services across the country. Minister Rabbitte committed to supporting this and will further engage with NAI and members, including MS Ireland to progress this issue.
