'A Vision for Change' contains some 200 recommendations to be implemented over a 7 - 10 year timeframe. Implementation of the recommendations is primarily the responsibility of the Health Service Executive (HSE). Following the launch of 'A Vision for Change' in January 2006, an independent Monitoring Group was established to monitor and assess progress by the HSE, Government departments and other agencies in implementing the recommendations set out in the Report. The Group's Annual Report for 2010 is expected to be submitted to me within the next few months. Implementation of 'A Vision for Change' will also be addressed by the HSE in its Corporate Plan 2011 - 2013 which is currently being prepared.
