Description:
This report gives a detailed account of the activities and events relating to the _ fifth term of office of Comhairle na n-Ospideal. The last three years, especially the latter half of that period, have been both a traumatic and a dramatic time for all involved in the delivery of acute hospital services. The reduction in 1987 in the level of public expenditure on health services, particularly acute hospital services, has brought changes within a short time span involving the closure of many small hospitals, a change in role for others and none have escaped the curtailment of services which inevitably flowed from across-the-board reduced budgetary allocations. It has also been a time of challenge to hospitals which, in the main, have responded well to the new situation by developing more efficient modes of delivery of services thus hastening the evolutionary process which was inevitably underway albeit at a slower pace. It has also been a time of great concern, which has been shared by the Comhairle, that the diminution in resources may result in a lowering of the high standards of care which the Irish hospitals have traditionally delivered on a par with the best international standards. The Comhairle, like many other bodies and individuals concerned with the hospital services, remains apprehensive about the maintenance of proper standards in the short-term, though optimistic that these events will lead, in the not too distant future, to a better and more efficient hospital system
