The Partnership for Health Equity (PHE) has received additional funding from the HSE to continue its work. PHE is a unique collaboration of clinicians, medical educators, social scientists and healthcare policy makers and planners. Led for UL by Professor Anne MacFarlane, the project is co-funded by University of Limerick, North Dublin City G.P Training Programme and the HSE’s Social Inclusion & Primary Care Services. The aim of the PHE is to improve access to primary healthcare for marginalised groups, including homeless persons, drug users, travellers, migrants and others. The additional funding will support work until summer 2016.
