IPA welcomes new Chief Medical Officer

The Irish Patients' Association welcomes Minister Donnelly's recent announcement

appointing Prof. Breda Smyth to the position Chief Medical Officer in the Department of Health.

We note and share Professor Smyth’s particular goals to support greater engagement with marginalised groups in society and address inequities in health

and the need to improve the affordability and quality of our health service for all.


‘Change and reform in our health care systems must not be from preventable funerals and injury to patients’
