Recruitment Imminent for Community Neuro-Rehabilitation Team in Wicklow - Matthews

Green Party TD Steven Matthews has welcomed the confirmation that the Minister for Health, , has committed to establishing a new community neuro-rehabilitation team in Bray for Community Health Organisation (CHO)-6, which includes Wicklow, Dun Laoghaire and Dublin South-East. The process of recruitment will commence shortly. This follows huge public concern and calls from Deputy Matthews and other representatives to establish a community neuro-rehabilitation team in Wicklow and provide further supports for individuals and families impacted by neurological conditions and disabilities.

“I am aware of huge concern at the local level regarding the urgent need for a neuro-rehabilitation team in Wicklow. I have met with families impacted by neurological conditions, and it is incredibly important that the Government and the HSE provides as much support as possible to enable those living with disabilities to maintain their physical and mental wellbeing and participate as an equal and valued member of society. This is a priority for me as TD for Wicklow.

“I have raised the lack of a neuro-rehabilitation team in Wicklow in the Dáil with the Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly TD. I welcome the update that funding has been provided under the Implementation Framework for the Neurorehabilitation Strategy to establish a community neuro-rehabilitation team in CHO-6. I understand that recruitment will take place imminently.

“Following this confirmation, I immediate wrote to the Minister seeking definitive timelines for the recruitment process to be completed and will continue to push for urgent action with this project. I will keep working for progress on this issue and inform those who have been in contact with me of any updates. If anyone has questions in relation to assistance for people living with neurological conditions in Wicklow, I would encourage them to get in touch with me directly and I will offer any support I can,” concluded Deputy Matthews.
