Only 15% of patients have access to a community neuro-rehabilitation team. The National Strategy for Neuro-Rehabilitation states that 9 teams are required, but only 2 have been delivered. Everyone deserves access to a community neuro-rehabilitation team. Areas highlighted in green have a team, areas highlighted in red do not.
Please take this opportunity to contact the Oireachtas members that represent constituents in your area. Patients deserve better. Take action now.
