Priorities for Cork Kerry Community Healthcare

Cork Kerry Community Healthcare’s (CKCH) strategic plan for 2019 to 2023 is available: CKCH StrategicPlanFinal

The plan helps our 8,000 staff to see their role in delivering our mission, vision, values and strategic priorities.

Working together, we can all Make Our Priorities Count.

The plan lists actions needed in the short, medium and long term to deliver on objectives related to our six Strategic Priorities.

Those six priorities are Access, People, Resources, Quality, Health and Wellbeing and Engagement. 

As well as the actions listed in the plan, staff in all parts of Cork Kerry Community Healthcare are taking on their own projects and initiatives.

Documents for local meetings

We are asking staff to hold meetings to discuss how they are Making Our Priorities Count.

A workbook is available: Workbook for Progressing Strategic Priorities at Local Level
