25/10/2016

Health Minister Michelle O’Neill today launched her 10-year vision, to transform the current health and social care system.

Michelle O’Neill launched her vision entitled, ‘Health and Wellbeing 2026: Delivering Together’ after considering the Expert Panel’s report, led by Professor Rafael Bengoa, ‘Systems, Not Structures: Changing Health and Social Care’ which clearly sets out the need for change.

The Minister said, “Across health and social care clinicians and staff are working harder than ever to deliver high quality care and support to patients and carers, but working in a system designed to meet 20th century needs does not work in the 21st century world.”
