Donegal residents in need of orthopaedic treatments are increasingly crossing the border for care under an EU Cross Border directive.
Orthopaedic care covers a wide range of injuries, diseases and conditions, including arthritis, requiring specialist care for individual needs.
The EU Cross Border scheme allows thousands of in and out-patients currently on hospital waiting lists in ROI to access more immediate hospital treatments in Northern Ireland.
The HSE is obliged to fund the treatments under the scheme on receipt of an invoice, covering the same amount of costs as the patient would receive in their own country for the same type of healthcare.
The private North West Independent Hospital in Ballykelly, Co. Derry provides ENT, Orthopaedics, Urology, Gynaecology and more treatments, encouraging those on waiting lists to view the full treatment directory here: www.nwih.co.uk/treatment-directory
