We hope you and your loved ones are all keeping safe and well. We want to let you know that MDI is working hard behind the scenes to advocate on behalf of our members throughout this crisis.
MDI is a member of the Disability Federation of Ireland and we are letting them know the concerns and issues of our members to bring to the HSE National Stakeholder Committee on the Coronavirus. We are also linking in with the Neurological Association of Ireland who will represent our issues on the Clinical Advisory Group to the Neurology Clinical Programme as they develop a protocol in relation to keeping neurology services operational during the coming period.
We are also keeping in regular contact with medical specialists to ensure that our members are informed of any developments. We encourage you to continue to visit the HSE page https://www2.hse.ie/coronavirus/ and other state websites regularly for up-to-date information and advice. Currently, the guidelines for people with neuromuscular conditions remain the same as those issued by the HSE.
Our Family Support Workers and Youth Workers are proactively offering support on the phone and by text, email and teleconferencing. Our back of office staff are working hard to keep the organisation running smoothly.
We are here to support you if you have any queries,
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Take care everyone.
On behalf of the MDI Team
