Take Action

Wexford General Hospital

Neurology patients are travelling 60 – 112 km to see their neurologists1. Local neurology services planned, but still not delivered2. Don’t neurology patients deserve the right care, in the right place and at the right time?

According to the Neurology Model of Care Wexford General Hospital should have a permanent consultant neurologist providing care for patients in the local community2. These patients, many of whom suffer from serious and disabling neurological conditions could be seen quicker and closer to home as outlined in Sláintecare.

Please take this opportunity to contact the Oireachtas members that represent constituents in your area. Patients deserve better. Take action now.

Dear Deputy/Senator,

Access to a consultant neurologist should be equally distributed across the country, so that the care you receive as a neurology patient does not depend on where you live. However neurology patients are travelling 60 – 112km to receive the care they need, although local neurology services have been planned for some time. Your constituents do not have access to a neurologist in their local hospital and instead travel 60km to receive the care they so desperately need at Waterford University Hospital.

The need for a consultant neurologist to provide neurology services at Wexford General Hospital is recognised in the Neurology Model of Care and the local community should have these services as:

  • Prolonged travel increases the cost of healthcare for patients and the provider
  • The HSE cites travel as one of the primary reasons for the ‘Did Not Attend’ rate, increasing waiting lists
  • Local neurology services reduce unnecessary admissions, length of stay and unnecessary testing

Please support those living with a neurological condition in your constituency by calling for local neurology services in Wexford General Hospital.

Yours faithfully,
