Description:
This White Paper describes briefly the origins of the health services, the pattern of the present services and the Government's, proposals for further developments in them. Intended changes in the financing and administration of the services are also described. The Government would wish that the various proposals in the different parts of the White Paper should be the subject of wide public discussion before any final decisions are taken on their detailed development. The Minister for Health will be available to discuss them with appropriate representative bodies. The changes proposed are complex and fairly costly. Their complexity rules out any question of their introduction in the immediate future, as it will take some time to prepare and consider the legislation which will be needed to give effect to them. Expenditure on developments in the services of the order proposed could not, in any event, be undertaken in the existing financial circumstances. In publishing their plans for the future development of ther health services now, the Government's object is to permit planning and preparatory work to proceed for the introduction of these changes, in the expectation that, when this planning and preparatory work has been completed, financial circumstances will be such that the changes can then be made without strain on the economy. In formulating the White Paper, the Minister for Health has had regard to various public statements made in recent years on the health services and on health policy, but the most important source, outside the Department of Health, of the basic information and ideas on which the Government's proposals are based was the volume Of submissions to the Select Committee on Health Services of the. Seventeenth Dail. The present Minister for Health and a number of his predecessors participated as. paembers of that Committee in the hearings of oral evidence before it. The oral evidence, too, has considerably influenced the development of the proposals in the White Paper.' The Government would wish to place on record their appreciation of the work done by the very many organisations and individuals who presented written and oral submissions to the Select Committee, thereby broadening the base from which the Government's policy, as now submitted for public discussion, was evolved.
