|dc.description||I am very pleased to publish this Outline Sectoral Plan in respect of the specific health and personal social services provided by the health services for people with disabilities. This is very much an interim Plan, primarily designed to encompass a programme of work which is to be undertaken over the next 12 to 18 months. The main aspects of this programme are related to the provisions contained in the Disability Bill 2004, together with a strategic review of the services as a whole. This review follows on a commitment given by the Government as part of "Sustaining Progress". It will examine the significant level of service provision which is already in place, focusing on specific issues which are of concern to people with disabilities and their families and will highlight both the strengths and weaknesses in the services. The review will provide people with disabilities and their carers, together with statutory and voluntary bodies in this area, with an opportunity to input into the planning and delivery of services over the coming years. While the Disability Bill 2004 has implications for the public service as a whole, it also has very particular implications for the health services. A key focus of this interim Plan is to undertake, in consultation with the relevant stakeholders, the work necessary to assist me as Minister for Health and Children, and my Department in putting in place those regulations. Micheal Martin. Minister for Health and Children.||en|
