Description:
When the Health Research Board took up office in January 1987 its remit included the development of programmes in medical research, health and health services research and epidemiological research: Following a period of review and rationalisation of its resources, consultation with the research community on future research priorities, and the appointment of a new Chief Executive, the Board was geared to commence the undertaking of the wider research responsibilities assigned to it. However, the publication of the estimates for the public service in October 1988 revealed that the Board's financial allocation for 1989 would be £ 1.3 million. This created a very serious situation for the Board as it represented a 43% reduction in the grant-inaid in comparison with an allocation of £2.3 million for 1987 and 1988 respectively. Given that a base budget of £2.3 million represented a minimal level of support the consequences of a budget of £ 1.3 million were almost calamitous. Following representations by the Board to the Minister for Health, Dr. Rory O'Hanlon, TO, and senior officials of his Department, the budgetary crisis was partially alleviated by having funding responsibility for some of the Board's current activities in the area of Information Systems and Extramural Research transferred to the Department of Health.
