Transforming Your Care: A Review of Health and Social Care in Northern Ireland

In December 2011 following an extensive consultation process the Minister for Health, Social Services and Public Safety published a report on the review of health and social care services.  This included a new model of care for NI based on 12 key principles:

  • Placing the individual at the centre of the model by promoting a better outcome for the service user, carer, and their family

  • Using outcomes and quality evidence to shape services

  • Providing the right care in the right place at the right time

  • Population-based planning of services

  • A focus on prevention and tackling inequalities

  • Integrated care – working together

  • Promoting independence and personalisation of care

  • Safeguarding the most vulnerable

  • Ensuring sustainability of service provision

  • Realising value for money

  • Maximising the use of technology

  • Incentivising innovation at a local level

Work continued after the report was published to develop implementation plans, including a further consultation process that resulted in the publication of: The Vision to Action Consultation Report.

The final strategic implementation plan was published in October 2013.
