The Neurological Alliance of Ireland launched their three year Strategic Plan (2017-2019) at their Neurological Summit on May 25th, outlining an ambitious programme aimed at raising awareness of and advocating for the needs of people with neurological conditions and their families.

The Neurology Summit represents a collaboration between the NAI and the Neurology Clinical Programme as part of the Future Health Summit. The event features workshops for people with neurological conditions and their families, as well as presentations by leading Irish and international neurospecialists.

Speaking at the launch, Chair of NAI Shona Logan King noted " We developed this Strategic Plan through consultation with our membership. It is an ambitious programme to guide our work in the areas of advocacy, awareness raising and enhancing capacity and sustainability. We are keenly aware of the challenging environment that continues to face us, and indeed our member organisations, because of funding constraints as well as increasing regulation and reporting requirements as well as significant competition for the health spend. NAI have a history of "punching above our weight" when it comes to our impact and we aim to continue to deserve this reputation".

Professor Tim Lynch, Clinical Lead with the Neurology Clinical Programme and Clinical Director of the Dublin Neurological Institute spoke at the launch, highlighting the value of the successful partnership between NAI and the Neurology Programme. "NAI has provided crucial support to the work of the programme, including working with us to carry out the first ever national audit of neurology services in 2015. We've benefited from NAI expertise and experience in advocating for more investment in neurology services".
