GHA to focus on efficiency and mental health, says Sacramento in budget speech

In her Budget Speech, Health Minister said there would be a new mental health crisis pathway for those in need of urgent attention. Samantha Sacramento said the Mental Health Board has clearly identified a need for an improved range of activities and rehabilitation programmes for patients during their stay in hospital.

Samantha Sacramento said the GHA will be focusing on efficiency and better value for money.

She said the new GHA Board will have a greater involvement in the Health Authority, as it holds its management to account in the delivery of strategic priorities.

Miss Sacramento said her team will look at how best to eliminate waste from the system, and how to improve the patient experience to ensure that they get the best outcomes.
