Service agreements and deeds of amendment

There is a service agreement in place between the Department of Health and each Hospital and Health Service (HHS) for the provision of public health services.

The service agreement defines the health services, teaching, research and other services that are to be provided by the HHS and the funding to be provided to the HHS for the delivery of these services. It also defines the outcomes that are to be met by the HHS and how its performance will be measured.

The current service agreement covers the period from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2022. Any amendments to the service agreement that are made during this period are documented in a deed of amendment.

Deeds of amendment will be published within 14 days of being signed by both the Director-General of the Department of Health and the Chair of the Hospital and Health Board.
