New Healthy Ireland plan to focus on staff and public

The new Health Services Healthy Ireland Implementation Plan 2023 – 2027 recognises the need to focus on HSE staff “personal health and wellbeing”, the HSE CEO Mr Bernard Gloster said today.

“This plan is another key step forward to achieve the goals of the Healthy Ireland Framework,” said Mr Gloster.

“The HSE recognises the importance of embedding health and wellbeing in health service delivery and taking a life course approach from childhood to healthy ageing. It identifies the benefits of further strengthening partnership and community working while recognising the dependency and the need to focus on staff personal health and wellbeing.”

According to the HSE  “significant progress” has been made in the implementation of the State’s Healthy Ireland Framework. However the Executive admitted “much remains to be done to further promote health and wellbeing to staff and the general population”.

“Central to this plan’s delivery will be the HSE’s ongoing partnership working with a broad set of stakeholders and partners including funded agencies, Tusla, local authorities and community organisations,” according to an Executive statement.

Speaking at the launch of the plan, Dr Philip Crowley, HSE National Director Strategy and Research said: “Investing in prevention and early intervention provides huge returns for our health service”.

According to Dr Crowley up to 80 per cent of cases of coronary heart disease, 90 per cent of type 2 diabetes cases, and one-third of cancers can be avoided by adopting healthy lifestyle behaviours.
