Description:
The Department of Health and Children is committed to introducing a workable, fair and consistent system of registration for certain allied health professionals. This Discussion Document sets out how such a system might operate in practice. It is intended as a basis for discussion with the professional groups concerned so that the process can be progressed in a consultative and efficient manner. The Department of Health and Children would welcome comments or suggestions regarding any aspects of this paper. There have been various initiatives to introduce statutory registration for certain allied health professionals in Ireland over the last fifteen years. These did not progress to conclusion for a number of reasons. Due to other pressing issues, the Department of Health faced difficulties in setting aside the necessary time and resources for the task, and the professional groups had problems with aspects of the earlier proposals including the principle of cross-subsidisation between disciplines, the protection of autonomy and the potential cost oflegal action arising from registration. Nevertheless, good progress was made on preparing a set of proposals in 1995/1996.
