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 vision of a health system in which care is provided in the right place, at the right time, by the right person.
Sláintecare Implementation Advisory Council (SIAC)
The Sláintecare Implementation Advisory Council (SIAC) comprises 21 members and is a critical element in the implementation of Sláintecare, providing advice and support to the Sláintecare Programme Implementation Office.
The 2019 Sláintecare Action Plan set out detailed timeframes for 138 projects that were to be progressed in 2019, as the first full year in the implementation of the Sláintecare vision, and firmly established a programmatic approach to the delivery of the Sláintecare strategy.
Of the 138 projects for the period up to December 2019, 112 were on track, 24 have been progressed with minor challenges, and 2 with significant challenge.
This work has been carried out by many stakeholders, including from the Department of Health, the HSE, the voluntary and community bodies and key partners. It represents a concerted effort to deliver on the all-party vision and provides a strong foundation for moving forward into 2020, and beyond.
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.
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.
