Instead of their usual meeting on the first Thursday of the month, the Glounthaune Group…
We had a very successful meeting in Buswells Hotel on 24th November and met some very influential Cork TDs who actively support the campaign. We were also joined online by a number of interested parties and other neurological groups anxious to highlight the shortage of Neurological Specialist
Nurses and the impact this has on their members. Since then, we have had a number of Zoom calls and face-to-face meetings with Cork TDs and continue to work closely with Mags Rogers of NAI to drive the campaign. Tony will be going to Leinster House to meet the Health Select Committee to highlight the need for specialist nurses in Cork University Hospital and in particular specialist Parkinson’s nurses.
The campaign will close with a big conference in Dublin and CPA will have a stand there to promote awareness of Parkinson’s and much more.
