Description:
Priorities There are many questions which must be asked about the future direction of our health services. As Minister for Health I would like to have the resources to meet all the needs which I know exist for health and welfare services but it is my unfortunate lot to have a smaller purse than the demands made upon it. Choice is always difficult, but it is more painful during times of recession and poor economic growth. There is an urgent need that as a society, we should be clear about priorities for public expenditure on the health services. In deciding these priorities we must be continually aware of the danger that the demand for high powered, sophisticated services for the acutely ill will reduce resources for what have been described as "cinderella" services for the chronically ill, disabled and the deprived.
