Description:
The programme for Government promises the most fundamental reform of our health services in the history of the State. This report details teh actions that we will need to take to deliver on this promise. The need for change in the health service in unquestionable. The current system is unfair to patients; it often fails to meet their needs fast enough; and it does not deliver value for money. The system is facing major challenges including significantly reducing budgets; long waiting lists; capacity deficits; an ageing population; and a significant growth in the incidence of chronic illness. It is simply not possible to address these challenges within the confines of the existing health system. The core of the Government's health reform programme is a single-tier health service, supported by Universal Health Insuracne (UHI), that is designed in accordance with the principles of social solidarity.
