Description:
This National Service Plan 2014 (NSP2014) is the first annual plan presented by the Directorate of the Health Service (hereafter in this Plan referred to as the Health Service), following the enactment of the Health Service Executive1 (Governance) Act 2013. It sets out the type and volume of services, as required under legislation, which will be provided within the funding provided by Government. The Plan is also the first since the publication of the Report of the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Public Enquiry (The Francis Report) in February, the findings of which highlighted, in the starkest of ways, the need for a renewed collective commitment to providing the highest quality care in the safest of healthcare environments. The ‘Keogh Report’ which followed this Enquiry again identified poor standards of patient care in a further 14 hospital trusts in England. The Report set out through eight clear ambitions the help and support that was needed to assist healthcare providers in accelerating improvements in the quality of care they provide while also tackling some of the causes of poor care. Similar findings and recommendations were also echoed in both the Health Service and Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) investigations into the safety, quality and standards of services provided to patients, resulting from the death of Ms. Savita Halappanavar at Galway University Hospital. While this Plan for 2014 sets out both the type and volume of services to be delivered by the Health Service for the money provided to it by the Oireachtas, it also has threaded through it a requirement that at a time of further financial contraction, it is especially important to ensure that providing the best level of care for patients and service users, must be at the forefront of planning for and management of services.
