Description:
The objectives of health care in relation to maternity services may be summarised as:- monitoring and maintaining the health of the mother during pregnancy through regular ante-natal care, ensuring safe delivery under skilled supervision, ensuring that, through skilful attention, the infant is given the best chance of optimal health and normal development. This report is intended as a contribution to getting general agreement on how best to attain these objectives so that the Comhairle can perform its task of structuring consuItant posts with maximum efficiency and to give maximum satisfaction. The report starts from the·assumption that the present pattern of services is not necessarily the. best for the future. Ireland has a changing population structure; there have been considerable advances in medical. knowledge and practice since the present pattern of services evolved; and, recently, the announcement by the Government of its plan for fewer and larger general hospitals and their location has considerable implications for maternity services.
