Description:
In November 1967, the Minister for Health appointed a Consultative Council to examine the general hospital service. The Council's report known as "The Fi tzGerald Report", published in June 1968, recommended that facilities for acute care should be concentrated into a small number of Regional and General Hospitals. The report noted that the concentration of acute care hospital services into a small number of centres increases the importance of the ambulance service and makes it essential that it be brought to the highest level of efficiency. Accordingly, it recommended that the Minister establish an Ambulance Board to advise on the various medical and technical aspects of organising and operating an ambulance service.
