Description:
A new Irish government came to power in March 2011 during one of the most severe economic crisis experi- enced by any OECD country since the 1930s. This gov- ernment promised the most radical proposals for health system reform in the history of the Irish state, including universal access to healthcare based on need not income, free GP care for all by 2015 and the introduc- tion of Universal Health Insurance after 2016. All these reforms were to be achieved amidst the most severe cuts to the health budget. While the public health bud- get quadrupled between 1997 and 2007, since 2007 the Health Service Executive (HSE) – the public health sys- tem has been cut by 17.5% and there are 12,000 fewer staff in the health system
