Description:
This executive summary of the HSE West Service Plan sets out the type and volume of services to be provided in 2012. The total allocation for Area West in 2012 is €1.78bn, with a staff allocation of 24,815 WTE. The following are the key overall priorities for 2012: 1. Ensure the delivery of high quality and safe services. 2. Seek to maintain the overall levels of service provided in 2011. 3. Work with the Special Delivery Unit to reform the delivery of emergency services and reduce waiting lists. 4. Deliver the cost reduction and restructuring programmes to maintain these service levels on a reduced budget of €1.78bn. 5. Implement the national clinical change programmes and new service developments in each Care Group. The budgetary challenge for HSE West in 2012 amounts to €104m and a staffing reduction of 784 WTEs by the end of the year. In recent years the service impact of budget reductions was offset by reductions in the rate of pay for staff. In 2011, reduced overhead, procurement, drug costs and a change to demand led schemes again reduced the impact on services. However in 2012 the cost reductions will primarily focus on our pay costs and on significant reductions in staffing levels. Health is very much a service provided by people to people, and consequently as our staffing levels reduce our capacity to provide services is coming under increasing pressure. It is very clear that we have to significantly change how we provide services in order to provide the maximum amount of safe services possible with our reduced budget. In all our planning processes we have made every effort to ensure that those most vulnerable are protected. Activity levels are fully detailed in the main body of the West Regional Service Plan 2012.
