The new Money Follows The Patient system which has been introduced in shadow form in 38 acute hospitals from the beginning of January this year poses a number of major challenges and concerns for health managers. Maureen Browne reports.
The HSE is being asked to meet an increased demand from an ageing population for more and more expensive services with a budget which has been effectively slashed by over €1 billion and a staff which it plans to cut by a further 3,600 WTEs during the year. Maureen Browne reports.
Hospital waiting lists are set to increase significantly, as multi million budgets cuts will mean that acute hospitals will have to drastically cut the number of inpatients and outpatients they can treat this year, writes Maureen Browne.
Bridging the gap between the development of an Open Disclosure policy and its successful implementation is dependent on a supported and resourced implementation programme, write Angela Tysall and Ann Duffy.
