Cause Description

Who Are The NRH?

The National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) is the only service of its type in the country.  Fully publicly funded hospital (with no private/semi private beds), providing high quality care & treatment to patients on the basis of clinical need.


What Does The NRH Do?

The NRH Dún Laoghaire is the only Hospital in Ireland providing complex medical specialist rehabilitation services for the national population. The Hospital provides a comprehensive range of specialist rehabilitation services to children & adults who, as a result of an accident, illness or injury, require rehabilitation services in the following areas of specialty: 

  • Paediatric Family Centred Rehabilitation
  • The Brain Injury Programme (including Stroke)
  • The Spinal Injury Programme 
  • Prosthetic, Orthotic and Limb Absence Rehabilitation

How Does The NRH Help?

Rehabilitation is a lifelong investment in people; it is an educational process of active change by which a person learns the knowledge and skills needed to enable them to participate meaningfully in family and community life. The focus is to provide treatment programmes dedicated to achieving the highest, safest level of independence possible for each person following their injury or illness. The NRH strives to minimise the impact of a person’s disability and optimise their potential, while also helping their families too.

For many of the Paediatric and Adult Patients, their journey with the NRH is often at a pivotal point in their lives. Upon arrival to the NRH, many patients will have experienced a very traumatic and often life-changing event. Through rehabilitation they often identify the new path that they will now follow in life’s journey.
