The People Strategy 2019 – 2024 sets out the future direction for the development of our people services across the healthcare system. It is focused on our shared purpose – to deliver services that are valued by the public and by our staff.

The three key areas are:

Leadership: Taking responsibility to work together to deliver ‘safer better healthcare’.

Talent: Having the right people with the right blend of skills in place to deliver our services and enable transition to new models of integrated care.

Capability: Developing the knowledge, skills and confidence to continually improve and transform our services – strengthening trust in the organisation and delivering ‘public value’

The People Strategy will increase our capacity to deliver Sláintecare – signalling a new a new direction for healthcare in Ireland, delivering a health and social care service that meets the needs of the population and attracts and retains the very best staff.
