Abstract:
I have pleasure in presenting the report on the hospital for the twelve months ended 31st December 1999. This report outlines the main activities of the hospital during a year where the hospital had to decline routine obstetrical bookings from areas outside of our traditional catchment areas which includes the greater Dublin area, Wicklow, North Kildare and parts of Meath. This action was necessary as the infrastructure of the hospital makes it very difficult to deliver a satisfactory service in line with the expectations of our patients when the level of deliveries exceed 7,500 per annum. However, tertiary referrals continued to be accommodated. The number of mothers delivered in 1999 was 7,537, a decrease of 3.58% over 1998. The hospitals budgetary performance during 1999 is set out in detail in the Report of the Finance & General Purposes Committee. The accumulated deficit carried into the year was £661k and this was reduced to £16k by 31st December 1999 despite an actual decrease in actual patient income of £68,431 over 1998. During the year discussions continued with the Department of Health & Children in regard to the need to develop the hospital to provide a satisfactory and safe environment in which we deliver services to patients. These discussions advanced satisfactorily and verbal assurances were received by year end that a Project Team would be established in the first quarter of 2000 to oversee a major hospital development, the cost of which is included in the National Development Plan
