Professor Breda Smyth has been appointed the Chief Medical Officer at the Department of Health.

The Mayo native has been the interim CMO since July, after the departure of Dr. Tony Holohan.

She has extensive clinical experience and has specialised in public health for the last 16 years and was formerly Professor for Public Health Medicine in NUI Galway and Consultant in Public Health in HSE West.

Health Minister Stephen Donnelly says he very much looks forward to working alongside Professor Smyth.
