Delivering Sláintecare

Published: 31 July 2019
From: Department of Health


The Government of Ireland and the Department of Health have set out the Sláintecare strategy to transform health and social care services. It seeks to deliver on the Future of Healthcare Committee’s vison of a health system in which care is provided in the right place, at the right time, by the right person.

Sláintecare Progress Report

The Sláintecare progress report for Quarter 3 of 2019 outlines progress on Sláintecare activity up to and including September 2019 as committed to in the Sláintecare Action Plan for 2019. The Sláintecare action plan for 2019 includes 114 projects for delivery in Q3 this year. Of those 114 projects, 106 are on track and 8 have minor challenges.

Sláintecare Action Plan

To progress this, the Sláintecare Programme Implementation Office developed the Sláintecare Action Plan 2019.

The Action Plan outlines the project management structures and governance approach for the 10-year implementation of Sláintecare and the actions and milestones for 2019.

The Action Plan is fundamental in enabling the delivery of the Sláintecare vision for reformed health and social care services in Ireland.

The Action Plan has identified four main Workstreams as follows:

  • Workstream 1: Service Redesign and Supporting Infrastructure
  • Workstream 2: Safe Care, Co-ordinated Governance and Value for Money
  • Workstream 3: Teams of the Future
  • Workstream 4: Sharing Progress

See an infographic of these workstreams and work programmes.

The Sláintecare Programme Implementation Office team continuously engages with the HSE Leadership Team and Strategic Transformation Office to enable an integrated and cohesive approach to the implementation of the Sláintecare 2019 deliverables aligned with the National Service Plan.

Significant progress has been made so far in implementing the Committee on the Future of Healthcare’s Sláintecare vision.

The Sláintecare Action Plan sets out detailed time frames for 239 deliverables that are to be progressed in 2019 as the first year in the implementation of the Sláintecare vision, and firmly establishes a programmatic approach to the delivery of the Sláintecare Strategy.

There are a total of 84 deliverables for the first half of 2019 of which 82 (98%) are on track. 2 have been progressed with minor challenges (2%) but these projects are expected to get back on course for their remaining deliverables by year-end.
