The Department of Health has today published a consultation report, produced by the Institute of Public Health, that will inform the further development of legislation governing providers of home support services in Ireland.
The report follows a public consultation on draft regulations governing public, private, and not-for-profit providers of home support services, which was launched by the Minister of State for Mental Health and Older People, Mary Butler, in June this year.
The Department received over 200 responses to the consultation which sought the views of a wide range of stakeholders, including service providers, service users, home support workers and family carers.
The Institute of Public Health (IPH) analysed all submissions to the public consultation and produced this report for the Department of Health.
