Specialty-Specific Reviews


Speciality Specific Reviews were developed to provide evidence-based data and projections for the current and future requirement for each of the medical specialities. These reports outline the current specialty service delivery model, the configuration of the medical workforce, future drivers of change to that workforce as well as planned models of care, among other things. This information then feeds into the medical education and training aspect of NDTP via the commissioning and funding of medical training required to meet workforce needs, ensuring that the training content and delivery is responsive to the changing needs of the Irish healthcare system, and supporting the retention of doctors upon completion of their training.
