Actue & Elective Care Strategy - Developing Better Services - Bairbie De Brun - The Reason For Todays Problems
Developing Better Services, the Health Care Strategy from 2001, brought forward by former Health Minister Bairbie De Brun.
When we look at previous health strategies, service changes and polices that the health service has been subjected to, what we are seeing today is no surprise. Since 1998 there have been 2 overall strategies, 1 created under Sinn Fein’s Barbrie De Brun in 1999 the other created under the DUP’s Edwin Poots in 2011.
