Description:
The accompanying report Towards Better Health Care: Planning in Health Boards is intended to guide management teams in Health Boards in the development of plans to meet priority health care needs over the next few years. Better planning is the major administrative need in the Irish Health Service. The increasing pressure on resources as needs increase, for example, with the rising proportion of aged in the population, as demands increase, for example, with the population raising its minimum acceptable standard of health care, and as costs inflate, ensure s that money and staff required will always outstrip what is available. Therefore, those in the health service must ensure that (l) health care gets the maximum proportion possible of the national budget and', (2) resources that are made available are spent where and how they can do most good. Competent planning serves both these ends. By evaluating the current satisfied and unsatisfied needs in health care and by demonstrating how resources can be used with high .impact, planning enables the Minister and his Department to make a strong case (in political and economic terms) when competing for available funds. By identifying and allocating the funds only to the highest priority projects and by checking that existing expenditure continues to serve a high priority need, planning ensures that resources consumed by health care have the greatest possible impact.
