Department of Health
558. To ask the Minister for Health the date of the last and next meeting of the Sláintecare implementation programme board; the record of attendance for each meeting; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [3031/22]
Responsibility for the implementation of Sláintecare projects is now devolved to a senior leadership team within my Department. To ensure that implementation is fully embedded across the Department and that the drive for universal healthcare is embedded across both the Department of Health and the HSE, a new Programme Board has been established. Reporting to me, the Board is co-chaired by the Secretary-General of the Department and the Chief Executive Officer of the HSE and will also comprise senior members of the Department’s Management Board and the HSE’s Executive Management Teams.
The first meeting of the Programme Board took place on 15 December 2021. The Board is expected to meet on a bi-monthly basis with the next meeting provisionally planned for 16 February. The attendance list for the meeting on 15 December is set out below.
