 Representatives of the "We Need Our Heads Examined" campaign, NAI Executive Director Mags Rogers and CEO of An Saol, Reinhard Schaler, were interviewed on Newstalk Breakfast radio on Wed 8th March.

Both spoke of the impact of the ongoing bed closures in the context of an already hugely underresourced neurorehabilitation service with Ireland having less than half the number of rehabilitation beds required.

Representatives of the campaign met with Minister for Health Simon Harris in February and he has agreed to meet again in May to review progress on the HSE committment to deliver a revised implementation plan for the national neurorehabilitation strategy by June 2017.

The campaign will be calling for a committment by the Minister to invest in implementation in the forthcoming Estimates.
