In this section, we will get to know the healthcare system of the town that was voted by Ulster Television viewers as the most desirable place to live in Northern Ireland. This is the town of Bangor.
Bangor is a large town in County Down, Northern Ireland. The town was originally called “Inver Beg” after the (now culverted) stream which ran past the abbey. The name Bangor is derived from the Irish word Beannchor (modern Irish Beannchar) meaning a horned or peaked curve or perhaps a staked enclosure, as the shape of Bangor Bay resembles the horns of a bull. Bangor is a seaside resort on the southern side of Belfast Lough and within the Belfast Metropolitan Area. It functions as a commuter town for the Greater Belfast area, which it is linked to by the A2 road and a direct railway line. Bangor is situated 13.6 miles (22 km) east from the heart of Belfast, not far from George Best Belfast City Airport.
Bangor is classified by the NI Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) as a large town within the Belfast Metropolitan Urban Area (BMUA). Large towns are those with a population between 18,000 and 75,000.On 27th of March 2011, there were 58,965 people living in Bangor. Of these, 23.09% were aged under 16 years and 24.93% were aged 60 and over and 48.13% of the population were male and 51.86% were female.
Like the rest of Northern Ireland, Bangor has a mild climate with few extremes of weather. It enjoys one of the sunniest climates in Northern Ireland, and receives about 900 millimetres (35 in) of rain per year, which is moderate by Ireland’s standards. It enjoys a mild microclimate, with very little snow. Snow is rare but occurs at least once or twice in an average winter and frost is not as severe as areas further inland. This is due to the mild winters and close proximity to the sea.
Ireland’s basic healthcare system has some core features and a history that most British observers could recognise. The primary source of healthcare funding is general taxation, much of the country’s hospital capacity has traditionally been under government ownership and their ‘national health service’ model is managed by centralised government authorities, though as in the UK, the exact structure of the health service has evolved over time in several top-down reorganisations.
The biggest part of healthcare in Northern Ireland is provided by Health and Social Care in Northern Ireland. Though this organization does not use the term ‘National Health Service’, it is still sometimes referred to as the ‘NHS’.
The current Irish health system is plagued by a variety of problems, some of which are comparable to problems we face in the UK and which, taken together, have inspired the Irish coalition government’s radical UHI plans. In FairCare: Fine Gael Proposals to reform the health service and introduce universal health insurance’ (2009) Fine Gael, February, many of the existing issues in the Irish health system and its performance on some measures of healthcare quality are very comparable to those of the British NHS – this is unsurprising given the relative similarities between our nations and core systems. Though there are differences, the Euro Health Consumer Index (EHCI), the OECD, the European Parliament, academic researchers and Ireland’s Fine Gael party have grouped the UK and Ireland together as tax-financed ‘Beveridgean’ or ‘national health service’ systems with a “centralised monopoly health service provider financed from taxation” (FG definition) at the core of the health system. As with the UK NHS, the Irish service has seen reorganisations, culminating in the creation of the current Health Service Executive (HSE) in 2005. The system also faces problems familiar to the UK in terms of waiting times, relative underfunding, centralisation and accountability, numbers of doctors, technological uptake and clinical outcomes – the performances of the UK and Ireland on mortality amenable to healthcare within the OECD and in consistent Euro Health Consumer Index (EHCI) rankings are in particular strikingly similar.
Despite repeated efforts to reduce them, including the National Treatment Purchase Fund (NTPF) and the Special Delivery Unit, waiting times have long been a major concern in the Irish health system. In 2001, a survey of public attitudes found that “59% believed that waiting times in the public system had increased over the previous three years” (70% in Dublin). Lower income people were also more likely to perceive waiting times as a problem, demonstrating an equity gap in access to timely treatment. Data from the Central Statistics Office in 2007 suggested that despite the founding of the NTPF as part of the 2001 National Health Strategy, waiting times remain an issue.
