There is an unequal supply of health and social care across counties in Ireland, according to new ESRI research funded by the Health Research Board (HRB).

It finds that the commuter counties of Kildare, Meath and Wicklow had the lowest supply overall of ten primary, community and long-term care services examined by the research. This could impede proposed Sláintecare proposals to move more care from hospitals to the community.
