Green light today for six hospital groups - Irish News, World News & More | The Irish Times - Tue, May 14, 2013
God knows James Reilly has been a PR nightmare for the government. It would be nice to think that there has been work going on in the background that will lead to real reform in healthcare in this country which result in a better health service delivered.
Today, we'll see the detail behind the hospital grouping, which on the surface at least, seems to make sense.
Concentrate critical activities into bigger hospitals, use smaller hospitals more specific functions rather than each smaller hospital trying to be a jack of all trades.
Today's announcement and the governments delivery on this strategy will show Reilly to be a good health minister or a failure.
