Translation of health data, evidence and intelligence into a utility of knowledge is essential to enrich the planning process and ensure the direction of travel at this time of reform in our health system is population focused. The aim of this paper is to set out a clear and comprehensive overview of the imminent demographic pressures which our Health Service will encounter in 2017 and continue to do so over the next five years to 2022. In addition we have examined areas of service that are growing and highlighted elements of unmet demand and need where appropriate and possible. All current and relevant population and Health Service datasets are examined, interrogated and translated. This is achieved by applying a standardised approach using consistent methodologies and population projections across all areas of service at a national level. This is essential for equity based Health Service planning.
