Reply To: IVIG treatment for CIDP in Ireland

December 15, 2013 at 2:39 am

I have friends who lived in Ireland several years while the husband attended graduate school. The wife had symptoms of a neurological disease and, while trying to get diagnosis and treatment, was confronted with all the red tape and delays of the health system. It took her 2-3 months before she could get treatments. My friend and his family have now moved back to the USA and the doctors here are questioning the diagnosis of Lupus that the Irish doctors gave his wife.

I have no first hand knowledge of the Irish system, but I would say to expect delays.
