Description:
This Report records the experiences of a patty of some some 170 members of the International Hospital Federation and their guests who came from fourteen countries to take pan in a Study Tour of Hospitals in Ireland. They spent eleven days visiting hospitals and allied institutions in nine centres, along a route which took them through some of the most beautiful parts of a country famed for the splendour of its scenery. The programme of the Tour had been drawn up in such a way as to enable participants to see Ireland's newest hospitals. and in fact. of the twenty-three establishments included. ten have been opened since 1953, while several others have new departments or extensions recently added. This will give some idea of the extensive programme of hospital construction which has been undertaken in Ireland. During the past seven years. some £30 million have been spent; building operations completed have provided some 8,000 additional hospital beds and cots. and work in progress will provide some 1.200 further beds on completion. Plans have been made for future extensions and the construction of several new hospitals, covering a total of over 2,500 new beds and cots. The hospitals visited by participants in the Study Tour range in size from a district hospital with 35 beds to a mental hospital with 1,655 beds, and between them serve all branches of medicine. They are described in Chapter TV of this Report. which also contains information on the number of patients treated. building costs and cost of treatment. Points of particular interest in the hospitals visited are dealt with in Chapter 111, compiled from notes supplied by a number of participants in the Tour. Their assistance is much appreciated; the value of an international Study Tour derives in no small measure from the fact that it enables hospital workers to see hospitals abroad not only from their own point of view, but through the eyes of their colleagues from other countries. It is hoped that those who were unable to visit the hospitals of Ireland will gain useful information from the impressions of those who did.
