Kilkenny Wellness Day – Migraine Information Stand

One Day Seminar

‘Living Well with a Neurological Condition in the Community – Putting People First – Having your say’

Lyrath Hotel Kilkenny Friday May 2nd 2014 10.30am- 4.30pm

 Register to patricklittle@migraine.ie

The topic for the day is Living Well with a Neurological Condition in the Community.

The new Local Government Act gives responsibility for decisions on funding and the development and oversight of local community and economic plans to new Councils. The aim of the day is to:

  • Give people who suffer from neurological conditions and their families an opportunity to come together to identify what they would like to see developed in their community for living well.
  • Offer people an opportunity to hear about the changes in the new Local Government Act
  • Invite prospective candidates to listen to what people with neurological conditions have to say before they sit down to draft new community plans.

The morning will be spent listening to the views of local people. In the afternoon we hope to provide people with information on the changing local government and HSE structures.

Finally we are inviting Local and European politicians and Election candidates to join us in hearing and discussing the priorities which people in the morning will have identified for living well with a neurological condition in the community.

We welcome individuals with neurological conditions, family members, carers, NAI organisations in the SE, senior HSE and local government officials, DFI, and Local politicians and EU/Local candidates standing for election.
