Press Releases

Opportunity for People to Have Their Say on Future of Healthcare

on .

The Oireachtas Committee on the Future of Healthcare today published its request for submissions. Speaking afterwards, Deputy Hildegarde Naughton, member of the committee and T.D. for Galway West – South Mayo, said;

“I welcome today’s publication and see it as an opportunity for people to have their say on the future of healthcare in our country.

Far too often health policy is decided in an office in Dublin and without the input of the people to whom it matters most; patients, the public and those working on the frontline.

While there has been consultation on various discreet aspects of the health service in the past, this is the first time the public will have a chance to input directly into planning what the health service will look like over a generation.

I think it is vitally important that this committee hears from as large a cross section of the community as possible. Without the participation of civil society generally an improved health service into the future will be more difficult to achieve.

The remit of the committee is to achieve cross-party consensus on a ten year strategy for health care and health policy in Ireland, and to make recommendations on a changed model of health care.

To assist the committee in the formulation of its report, we are seeking written submissions from interested representative bodies, individuals and groupings.

I would therefore urge anyone who wants to see change in how our health service is delivered to make a submission to the committee.

Written submissions should be submitted electronically by email and received by Mr Ronan Murphy, Clerk to the Committee on the Future of Health Care at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.not later than 5.00 p.m. onFriday 26th August 2016.”
