CORU regulates the health and social care professionals in Ireland.

“It has been my great honour to have commenced as CEO/Registrar of CORU  ten years ago, starting from scratch, with my own laptop in a borrowed office,” she said.

“I have a great team in our Council members, registration board members and our executives as we now regulate nine professions – Social Workers, Radiographers, Radiation Therapists, Dietitians/Dieticians, Speech and Language Therapists/Speech Therapists, Optometrists, Dispensing Opticians, Occupational Therapists, and Physiotherapists/Physical Therapists.

“Our tenth register for Medical Scientists will hopefully be open before the end of the year  – while continuing our ongoing work with two others  – Psychologists and Social Care Workers.

“We await the appointment of the Podiatrists Registration Board.  The other designated professions include Clinical Biochemists, Orthopists and from July 2, Counsellors and Psychotherapists.”
