All capital development proposals are at various stages of development. It is important to recognise that all capital development proposals must progress through detailed appraisal, planning and design, procurement, construction and commissioning stages before a firm timeline or funding requirement can be established.

The availability of funding, the relative priority and the stage in the project's lifecycle determines the timeframe for the delivery of all capital projects.

The Health Service Executive manages public health capital investment to advance priority capital projects in line with national policy and service priorities. In addition, the HSE, in accordance with the Public Spending Code must carefully plan the use of this capital funding to meet the populations health needs and achieve value for money.

Project 2040 Project Ireland 2040 and the National Development Plan are long-term plans which will provide the capital funding to develop infrastructure, equipment and additional service capacity for the public health sector over the next decade. The National Development Plan provides €10.9 billion, representing an increase of 165% in capital funding over the previous decade. The capital funding for Health in the National Development Plan provides the investment for a solid, ambitious plan to improve our health services and modernise how we deliver services through the implementation of Sláintecare.
