Advocating with you and for you



The Irish Patients’ Association’s Mission is to keep the patient at the centre of the healthcare system. It does this by advocating for the needs of patients to be paramount while working in partnership with health providers. Through contact with patients, their families, and their carers, the Irish Patients Association (IPA) keeps abreast of ongoing and emerging patient needs. The Association addresses various committees, working groups and public bodies on behalf of patients.
