Speaking on behalf of Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly, Minister of State Frank Feighan highlighted the effectiveness of the campaign: advising the patient organisations involved to “take a bow” for the success of the campaign in raising awareness and understanding of the need for additional specialist nurses in neurology.
