Our Policies

Project Ireland 2040 is the Government’s overarching policy initiative to make Ireland a better country for all of us, a country that reflects the best of who we are and what we aspire to be.

A major programme of investment in health infrastructure will be guided by a recognition that that the best health outcomes can be achieved by reorienting our health services towards primary and community care where people’s health needs can for the most part be met locally, with high quality acute and emergency care provided in the appropriate acute hospital settings.

10.9 billion euro will fund major investment projects and programmes along with significant reform initiatives within the health sector.

See National Strategic Outcome 10 of the National Development Plan 2018 – 2027 for the full detail.
