In line with international best practice, it is recommended that a permanent Advisory Group for the design and monitoring of the PBRA be established. It is recommended this group is chaired by the DoH, and comprises members of the HSE, RHAs, DoH, Central Government, as well as academic experts in the area of health resource allocation models. This group should be supported by an appropriate secretariat. All the work of this advisory group should be made publicly available in the form of detailed reports on the formula/methodology and data used. The establishment of such groups will allow for refinement of the model as part of the ongoing Implementation Plan.
