Carer’s Strategy

The Minister of State at the Department of Health Kathleen Lynch told Michael Healy Rae (ind, Kerry S) and Willie Penrose (Lab, Westmeath) that a draft of the national carers strategy had been completed for submission to government in July, requesting formal adoption and publication (Dail Eireann, Debates, 26th June 2012, 283).  The strategy would not be an operational plan but would set the strategic direction, cross-departmental, conceptual and visionary elements and would establish high-level principles, goals and objectives and a roadmap to implementation.
