Description:
Guided by the HSE National Service Plan 2012 this summary of the Dublin North East Service Plan sets out the type and volume of services to be provided in 2012. Our priorities for 2012: Deliver the maximum level of safe services possible within allocated resources. Deliver the cost reductions needed to achieve a balanced budget in 2012. Implement reform programmes including the HSE National Clinical Care Programmes. Implement key elements of the Programme for Government particularly in children and families, mental health, primary care and acute hospitals. The 2012 budget for DNE requires us to reduce our costs by a total of 6.2% (including agency and overtime costs) and reduce staffing by up to 961 WTE. In 2009/10 the service impact of budget reductions was lessened by the fact that a significant element was met by reductions in the rate of pay for staff. In 2011, overhead, procurement, drug costs and similar reductions mitigated the impact on services. In 2012, however, the necessary cost reductions will primarily focus on our pay costs and on further more significant reductions in staffing levels than in previous years. 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 also clear that we cannot continue to provide services in the way we have done to date and therefore, the continuing resource reductions provide us with both a challenge and indeed, an opportunity to significantly change how we provide services in order to sustain the maximum amount of safe services. In all our deliberations we have strived to ensure that those most vulnerable are protected in so far as possible. Activity levels and service reductions are detailed in the Regional Service Plan 2012.
