    Abstract

    While spatial studies are only one part of a wider critical study of cross-border service planning, medical / health geographies have much to offer in terms of spatial data analysis. Based on the existing literature and developing a proposed index of well-being, a new micro-geography of potential patient demand is identified for the island of Ireland. In addition, new proposals on improved data sharing and a stronger focus on the collection of utilisation data are identified as valuable future empirical directions for applied research.
