Description:
This paper aims to set out a clear and comprehensive overview of the imminent demographic pressures that our health service will encounter in 2016 and continue to do so over the next five years up to 2021. Chapter 1 outlines the key messages from Chapter 3 – 7. It is important when reading Chapter 1 to be cognisant of the assumptions and contextual basis of these analyses. Chapter 2 then summarises the conversation regarding future challenges and solutions for our health system. Chapter 3 gives a comprehensive overview of our population including population growth both at national and regional level. In addition, the health status of our population is examined. Chapter 4 examines the challenges that acute hospitals face taking into account demographic pressure and current budget deficits. Chapter 5 explores primary care and the subpopulations which it serves. Chapter 6 summarises the increasing demands on (1) services for the older persons and (2) services for people with disabilities as a result of our population growth, in particular our increasing aging population. Finally, Chapter 7 explores the current and future needs and demands on our mental health service.
