The general public along with public representatives, healthcare professionals and key stakeholders are being invited to attend public meetings on the health service.

At the meeting, the NAGP, which represents more than 1500 General Practitioners, will set out its proposal for a ‘Tallaght Strategy for Health’ which would take the politics out of the national healthcare system and ensure a 10-year plan with consensus across healthcare providers. Such a consensus can only be achieved by involving all the political parties, representative bodies, including the National Association of General Practitioners, patients and stakeholders, to create a plan for health that is independent of the electoral cycle and has a reasonable time frame to succeed.
