Healthcare waiting times: improvement plan

Focuses on reducing the length of time people are waiting for key areas of healthcare.

Improving Mental Health

We are taking decisive action on access to care on mental health services in parallel with this Improvement Plan. In support of our Mental Health Strategy, which we published in 2017, the recent Programme for Government put forward an ambitious programme of reform and investment on mental health services. This will be further reinforced by the recommendations from the Task Force led by Dame Denise Coia, which will inform the specific actions and targets we need to take to ensure delivery of the right care in right place.

Once the Task Force has reported, before the end of the year, we will bring forward detail on actions to address mental health waiting times.
