Description:
Future Health: A Strategic Framework for Reform of the Health Service 2012-2015 (DoH, 2012) sets out the main healthcare reforms that will be introduced in the coming years. Future Health is about prioritising the needs of the patient, even as difficult decisions on health financing are made. This will involve moving towards a health service that provides access to care based on need rather than income, underpinned by a constant focus on health and well-being, a stronger primary care sector, a restructured hospital sector, and a more integrated social care sector, as well as a more transparent ‘money follows the patient’ system of funding, supported ultimately by Universal Health Insurance. The Reform Programme will have to be delivered against a backdrop of extremely challenging economic and fiscal conditions for the State in general and the health services in particular. It is against this backdrop that the Minister for Health decided, in July 2013, to establish a Working Group, chaired by Professor Brian MacCraith, President of DCU, to carry out a strategic review of medical training and career structure.
