dbo:abstract
  • Health and Social Care (HSC) is the publicly funded healthcare system in Northern Ireland, and one of the four systems which make up the National Health Service in the United Kingdom. The Northern Ireland Executive through its Department of Health is responsible for its funding, while the Public Health Agency is the executive agency responsible for the provision of public health and social care services across Northern Ireland. It is free of charge to all citizens of Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom. For services such as A&E, patients simply walk in, state their name and date of birth, are given treatment and then leave. Patients are unaware of costs incurred by them using the service. It is sometimes called the "NHS", as in England, Scotland and Wales, but differs from the NHS in England and Wales in that it provides not only health care but social care too (the NHS in Scotland also includes social care). Social services are provided by local councils. The Health and Social Care service was created by the Parliament of Northern Ireland in 1948 after the Beveridge Report. (en)
