Description:
This paper looks at the Irish Healthcare system, first by examining the structure of the system and then moving on to an analysis of trends in health expenditure both domestically and on a comparative basis with other developed economies. Discussion then centres on the notion of what it is that a health care system is trying to achieve, how best this may be financed and of the issues which are becoming ever more important for Ireland. Section 1 describes the structure of the Irish Healthcare system, looking at the Hospital sector, public and private and also considers the GP system in some detail.
