Our Proposals to Improve Your Health Service and to Introduce Universal Health Insurance over 5 years

Funding for health services has been slashed and it looks like more cuts are to come. Our health service has become a shambles. Our health service is ranked 15th in Europe for quality and 24th in terms of value for money. How do we fix this?

Fine Gael’s FairCare will deliver improved medical care to you and your family by:
– reducing waiting lists
– introducing a “money-follows-the-patient” budgeting system
– introducing Universal Health Insurance so every man, woman and child will be insured
– developing new primary care centres with access to x-ray, ultrasound and endoscopy where GPs and healthcare professionals will treat patients for free out of modern premises
