As we know the Irish healthcare system is facing significant challenges. We know that if we are to continue to meet the needs of people who use our services, then we need to change the way we deliver services.
Community Healthcare Networks are being implemented across the country to deliver this change.
They will re-shape how we deliver community healthcare services. Implementing these Networks supports our aim of moving to a system that sees more care delivered in the community. These Networks will support people to live more independently in their community by coordinating and integrating services.
