Paul has the privilege of leading over 130,000 dedicated staff who deliver a wide range of health services across Ireland. Paul is a passionate public servant whose vision for the health service was to introduce longer-term reform via Sláintecare, in delivering effective quality services within the resources available. In conjunction with this, he has safely navigated the health service through the largest public health crisis, and subsequent vaccination programme, of the modern era.
