While the years since the 1998 Belfast Agreement have seen remarkable progress in intergovernmental cooperation between Northern Ireland and Ireland, the extent to which greater collaboration is impacting on everyday life across the island is less certain. This chapter considers the impact of enhanced north-south cooperation on the public services people access in their day to day lives, with a focus on the health sector. Drawing on recent research, it examines both progress and potential in the delivery of health services on a cross-border basis, and considers some of the challenges and weaknesses encountered to date. Building on this case study, it identifies lessons for the provision of cross-border services in other sectors and concludes by making some observations on emerging wider constraints on the development of north-south co-operation.
