Health and care services

Appropriate, high-quality health and social care services must be available to all who require them, regardless of age, income or diagnosis. These services are primarily provided by municipalities and health trusts (hospitals).

The state is responsible for ensuring that there are universal framework conditions in place through the use of regulatory and financial requirements. The state is also responsible for monitoring and inspecting health and social care services. Much of this work is carried out by the County Governor.
