Sláintecare is the reformation of Ireland’s health system. The Sláintecare Report 2017 represents a fundamental shift, vision and strategic plan for the future direction of the Irish Health Services and sets out a ten year plan for reform with wide ranging recommendations for the future of Healthcare in Ireland comprising five key areas: Population Health Profiling; Entitlements and Access; Integrated Care; Funding; Implementation.  Key recommendations include:

  • Expansion of health and wellbeing and other measures central to providing integrated care,
  • Adequate resourcing of child health and wellbeing services,
  • Reduction and removal of charges,
  • Expansion of primary care, social care, mental healthcare, dentistry, and public hospital activity,
  • Expansion of public hospital activity, including through removal of private care from public hospitals.

The strategic plan sets out four overarching goals with 10 strategic actions. Healthy Ireland remains a focus of health and wellbeing in Ireland within the strategic plan.
