Description:
At the time of the establishment of the Joint Working Group, there were 29 approved posts of consultant cardiologist/cardiologist and general physician. Since then. 17 new consultant cardiology posts have been funded by the Department of Health and Children I Eastern Regional Health Authority and approved by Comhairle na nOspideal. There are currently 46 posts of consultant cardiologist and general physician approved for public hospitals in Ireland. We have identified an extensive series of recommendations in the report. In formulating the specific Phase I and Phase II recommendations, the Joint Working Group has recognised the services currently in place and addressed the regional disparities which exist, in order to achieve equity in the availability of services throughout the state, consistent with best medical practice and advice. The Group believes that the filling of the priority consultant posts identified will address the immediate requirements for the development of cardiology services throughout Ireland. This is a vital step in the orderly development of cardiology services nationally.
