Ireland Emergency Medicine

In October 2005 Dr Kay and Dr Mulcahy went to Ireland to meet with key stakeholders including the Minister for Health Ms Mary Harney regarding the possibilities for private Emergency Medicine in Ireland. A Ministerial briefing was conducted and several major hospitals were visited. Key players in the insurance industry were met with.

After the visit a ministerial report was produced on how to progress the private emergency market and discussions are continuing with hospital operators.
