Following months of consultations, discussions, wrangling, compromises and concessions, involving politicians, managers, clinicians and academics, the Cabinet has agreed to the establishment of six new public hospital groups. Maureen Browne reports.
Establishing a group hospital is a marathon, not a sprint, as sustainable change must be built on good solid foundations, Ann Doherty, CEO of the Mid Western Regional Hospitals Group, one of the prototypes for the new hospital groups, tells Maureen Browne.

There was an inherent resistance to change, which was often a fear of getting it wrong, Dr. Alan Smith, Director of Performance Improvement (Scheduled Care) with the Department of Health Special Delivery Unit, told a conference on maximising day surgery in Ireland in the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. Maureen Browne reports.
