Dear Ministers McGrath & Donohoe and copied to Minister Donnelly,

Please find attached a Pre-budget Submission 2025 from IrSPEN, the Irish Society of Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism.

There are two asks in the submission which are:

  1. The extension of malnutrition screening and supports to the community, particularly for cancer patients and older people living with frailty.
  2. The appointment of 20 additional Dietitian posts dedicated to cancer patients at €1.9m. 

If you would like to meet with IrSPEN, or have any questions we would be delighted to engage and work with you to progress these important issues.

You might please acknowledge correct receipt of our submission.

Many thanks.

On behalf of IrSPEN,
