The National Development Plan provides €10.9 billion for Health capital developments across the country.

As is to be expected with a ten-year plan, many proposals are at an early stage and - as with all capital development proposals - will require further appraisal, planning, design and tender before a firm timeline or funding requirement can be established.

It is important to note that the NDP does not include funding allocations for individual programmes, projects or locations.

Health capital projects and programmes currently underway will continue.
