Indecon research economists were appointed by the Department of Health based on a competitive tender, to independently investigate the costs and benefits of potential measures to encourage the provision of primary care facilities.
The key aims of this project were:

  • To assess the current and future requirements for facilities for the period 2015-2035 and the likely gap in the absence of additional measures to encourage provision.
  • To identify the reasons for the current lack of investment in facilities.
  • To identify the potential policy options for addressing any under-provision of primary care.
  • To assess the costs and benefits of the options to provide enhanced primary care provision
