This year approximately 44,000 people across Ireland will be diagnosed with a neurological condition, that’s in addition to the 700,000 people already diagnosed. Today with a ratio of just 1 per 140,625 people, Ireland has the lowest number of Consultant Neurologists per head of population in the entire western world. The Dublin Neurological Institute will go a long way towards improving the care and services available for neurological patients but we need your help to continue funding this essential facility.
