Neurology is a branch of medicine that deals with disorders of the brain and nervous system. At the Mater Hospital, we offer an inpatient and outpatient service, with collaboration with The Dublin Neurological Institute (DNI), including diagnostic testing for neurological conditions and support for their management.


Our inpatient service includes dedicated beds for neurology patients, Inpatient consultations and a Consultation service for the Emergency Department.

Outpatients & Referrals

Our outpatient service runs across both The Mater and the DNI. Clinics include Parkinson’s, Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis and Stroke. Patients must be referred by a GP or consultant. The referral should contain as much clinical detail as possible about the patient’s condition and should be in a typed format sent by post to Central Referrals or Healthlink.

Given the high demand for neurology appointments, the wait to see a neurologist can be up to 36 months.

During clinic visits, patients receive multidisciplinary care from a team that includes consultants, non-consultant hospital doctors and clinical nurse specialists. We run four to five large outpatient clinics every week.
