Developing better services: modernising hospitals and reforming structures
Department of Health (DoH), Social Services and Public Safety.
I commissioned a review of acute hospital services in August 2000, and asked the review group to make recommendations on the future profile of hospital services, taking account of issues of accessibility, safety, clinical standards and quality of services. The review was set up against a background of many years of under-funding of health services, which has undermined and weakened their capacity to deliver the quality of service demanded of a modern hospital system. My objective was to develop an agenda for a major, and long overdue, modernisation of the acute hospital system. The Executive has recognised the need to boost health and social care expenditure and has invested an additional £523 million in healthcare since the establishment of the Assembly. Of this, 80% has been required merely to maintain existing services. Barbre de Brun. Minister for Health, Social Services and Public Safety.
