Department of Health & Children: Statement of Strategy 2008 – 2010
During the period covered by our last Statement of Strategy, fundamental changes were made to the structures and organisation of our health services. Most notably, the Health Service Executive (HSE) was established, and given statutory responsibility to use the resources available to it in the most beneficial, effective, and efficient manner to improve, promote and protect the health and welfare of the public. The Health Information and Quality Authority
(HIQA) was established to help drive continuous improvement in Ireland’s health and social care services.
