**** Advice regarding the MND Service during the Coronavirus Crisis ****
We understand that this is a very difficult and frightening time for everybody.
To make sure that people with MND continue to receive excellent care, our clinical and research doctors at TCD, along with doctors and nurses providing the national MND service in Beaumont Hospital and Cork University Hospital will join forces with the IMNDA Nurses to provide ongoing phone and telemedicine care, along with home visits throughout the country.
This team will comprise 3 consultants, 4 Registrars, 6 nurses and a specialist physiotherapist along with our regular multidisciplinary teams.
If you have any concern you can call your IMNDA or Beaumont MND nurse.
Starting on Thursday March 26th, we will also provide a full time out of hours telephone service for emergency advice relating to COVID 19 and MND.
Emergency phone number: 087 4393213
If you have any concerns you can also email MNDADVICE@gmail.com
