This event will present findings on new ESRI research which provides projections of expenditure for public acute hospital and adult psychiatric in-patient services for Ireland for the years 2018-2035. These projections are based on new ESRI projections for population and economic growth, both of which consider the potential impact of COVID-19. A range of alternative projections are presented reflecting alternative assumptions about population growth, trends in health and life expectancy, policy change, and costs.
