Following on from the commitment made in Future Health - the Strategic Framework for Reform of the Health Service 2012-2015, the HSE has completed a detailed review of Integrated Service Areas which proposes revised structures to facilitate delivery of integrated and person-centred care across the wide range of non-acute services, particularly primary care and those involving the care of older people, people with a disability and people with a mental illness. The proposals also seek to ensure appropriate integration between acute and non-acute services.

The HSE report has been the subject of examination by my Department and I intend shortly to bring proposals to Government regarding the reorganisation of primary and social care services.
