 NAI welcome support for its pre-budget asks in the Sinn Fein alternative budget for Health announced last week, 

The document outlines commitments for 50 additional neurorehabilitation beds as well as funding for community neurorehabilitation teams in each of the nine CHOs around the country. 

A national implementation plan published by the HSE in 2019 comes to an end this December having part funded just two teams nationwide. 

Speaking at the launch webinar NAI Executive Director Mags Rogers welcomed the commitment, outlining that the lack of neurorehabilitation services continues to have a devastating impact on people with neurological conditions and their families throughout the country while also contributing significantly to delayed discharges within the health system. 

She also pointed out that an additional 150 specialist rehabilitation beds are required nationwide according to Irish and international best practice guidelines.
