Description:
Improving the health and social wellbeing of the population, including access to primary health care, is a central component of national, regional and focal health strategies in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. In 1992 health boards on both sides of the Irish border entered an arrangement (known as the Ballyconnell Agreement) to cooperate in identifying and addressing specific health and social needs in the border region. Since then, the formal entity created from the agreement, CAWT (the acronym for 'Co-op erating and Working Together'), has undertaken a series of broad-ranging projects and initiatives, organised through various sub-group specialities. This study was initiated through the Primary Care sub-group's Primary Care Project 'Developing Primary Care across Borders and Boundaries'. A multi -disciplinary team (See Appendix 1) of academics, medical professionals and technical experts from the University of Ulster, the National University of Ireland, Galway, and Causeway Data Communications Ltd, Coleraine, was commissioned to undertake a feasibility study of the provision of out of hours primary care services in the Irish cross-border region.
