Statement from the Minister for Health

Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly TD has paid tribute to Paul Reid on the announcement of his resignation as CEO of the HSE.

Minister Donnelly said: "Since his appointment as Chief Executive in June 2019, Paul Reid has provided exemplary leadership to the HSE. 

“He has led Ireland’s health service through some of its most difficult days and has done so with dedication and professionalism. 


“Throughout the pandemic, Paul played a critical role in leading Ireland’s response to the greatest health emergency of our times.  


“He leaves behind him an organisation much enhanced for his time as Chief Executive and one that is already making real progress in implementing reform and improvement across many aspects of healthcare provision.


“I want to wish Paul all the best for the time ahead and to thank him and his family for the many sacrifices they have made over the last three years to allow him to dedicate himself to the role of CEO.”
