Welcome to the

Department of Health

The Department of Health's statutory role is to support the Minister in the formulation and evaluation of policies for the health services.

It also has a role in the strategic planning of health services. This is carried out in conjunction with the Health Services Executive, voluntary service providers, Government Departments and other interested parties.

We are moving!

From 2nd April please visit www.health.gov.ie for the latest from the Department of Health.

We'll maintain this site for a while until we've moved all our archives over.
