Description:
On the 18th of June 2003, the Government announced the most extensive reform programme of the Health System in over 30 years. The programme's priority focus is improved patient care, better value for taxpayers' money and improved health care management. The reform programme includes measures which will impact on every element of the health system and will draw on the conclusions and recommendations of two reports published in June 2003 : The Commission on Financial Management and Control Systems in the Health Service (the Brennan Commission); and The Audit of Structures and Functions in the Health System (Prospectus) . The measures announced include: A major rationalisation of existing health service agencies. This involves the consolidation and amalgamation of 32 agencies Including the abolition of the existing health board structures The establishment of a Health Service Executive which will be the first ever body charged with managing and delivering the health service as a single national entity The immediate establishment of an interim National Hospitals Office to take early action in reforming the hospitals sector. This Office will be one of three core parts of the Health Service Executive - the others being a Primary, Community and Continuing Directorate to manage non-hospital services and a National Shared Services Centre . A Primary, Community and Continuing Care Directorate with four regional health offices and 32 local health offices to deliver regional and local non-hospital services The reorganisation of the Department of Health ana Children, to ensure improved policy development, oversight and evaluation of service delivery The establishment of a Health Information and Quality Authority to ensure that quality and effectiveness of care is promoted throughout the system The devolution of responsibility for budgets to the people actually in charge of delivering services The complete modernisation of supporting processes (service planning, management reporting, etc.) to improve planning and delivery of services
