Dr James Reilly TD, Minister for Health has invited applications from suitable candidates to contribute to the reform of Ireland’s Acute Hospital System.
Expressions of interest are being sought form those wishing to be a board member or to chair the Boards which are being established for each new Hospital Group on a non-statutory administrative basis. These hospital groups include: Dublin North East; Dublin Midlands; Dublin East; and South/South West.
In May, the Minister for Health announced the reorganisation of public hospitals into six hospital groups. Each group of hospitals will work together as single cohesive entities managed as one, to provide acute care for patients in their area, integrating with community and primary care.
