National neurology needs assessment: appendices and technical reports.
|dc.contributor.author||Comhairle na nOspidéal|
|dc.description||Neurology services should be developed around groups of neurologists based or linked to major neuroscience centres. The two neuroscience centres at Beaumont Hospital and at Cork University Hospital (CUH), and the neurological unit at University College Hospital, Galway should continue to be the focal point for neurology and neurophysiology services in Ireland. The priority developments were to: a. Establish neurology units in Waterford Regional Hospital, the Mid-Western Regional Hospital, Limerick and Sligo Regional Hospital, each to be staffed by two consultants, with regular outpatient clinics and inpatient consultations at other hospitals in their regions. Each of these new units would have links to their relevant neuroscience centre (Waterford and Limerick would link with CUH and Sligo would link with Beaumont). b. Enhance the Neuroscience Centre at Beaumont with the appointment of four additional consultant neurologists to provide a complement of seven posts in total. Long term Comhairle envisaged an eight post at Beaumont. Consultant neurologists based at the Neuroscience Centre at Beaumont should provide regular formal consultant out-patient clinics and inpatient consultations at the hospitals in North-East (Drogheda and Cavan) and The Midlands (Tullamore)||en_GB|
