Description:
As has been the case each year of this decade, 1985 was once again a year when the major concern and preoccupation of the Board were the severe difficulties posed by the shortfall in the allocation received from the Department of Health to run our services. Staff and services without exception were under severe pressure in an effort to maintain the level and quality of our services within the constraints of the financial allocation received. During the year no opportunity was missed to bring to the attention of the Minister for Health the effect of the financial cutbacks on services within this region and to highlight the fact that our Board seemed to be more harshly treated in terms of cutbacks than any of the other boards. As the Board which has, probably more than any other, made significant progress in the transfer of care from hospital to community, and which puts a higher proportion of its allocation into community services, it is particularly depressing to see these community services now being cut back as a result of these shortfalls in funding from the centre. In fact, it seems that our very success in implementing this policy over the years has been the cause of our cuts being higher than those of any other Board. Within this context of severe financial constraint the Board accorded priority to trying to protect the level of service provision to the weaker sections of the community particularly the aged and the hsndicapped and to find ways to strengthen and maintain priority services
