This document outlines Sinn Féin’s €1.1 billion Alternative Budget for Health, which would kickstart a 10-year strategy to deliver an Irish National Health Service, end the two-tier health system and deliver timely health and social care on the basis of need, not ability to pay. The wide-ranging package of measures includes €150 million for reducing the cost of healthcare; €391 million for expanding hospital capacity to tackle waiting times; €82 million for mental health services and €153 million for disability services among others.
