Midland Regional Hospital Portlaoise: Patients Deserve Better Launch

Last Updated:

The Neurological Alliance of Ireland (NAI) has launched a campaign calling for a dedicated consultant neurologist in 5 regional hospitals around the country, including Portlaoise Regional Hospital. Full details about the campaign can be found on the dedicated website Patients Deserve Better

On Monday, May 20th, NAI held an online launch event which allowed TDs and councillors to hear from local patients, patient organisations and clinicians on the need for a dedicated neurology service for Portlaoise Regional Hospital.

We were delighted to welcome three speakers at the Portlaoise launch:

  • Tony Flanagan, a person living in Portlaoise with Multiple Sclerosis
  • Doctor Petya Mihaylova, Consultant Neurologist Tallaght University Hospital
  • Martina Sinnott, a person living with Parkinson's Disease
