Dr Aoife Mullally has been appointed as the HSE Clinical Lead for Termination of Pregnancy services.
Dr Mullally is a leading figure in obstetrics and gynaecology. She has previously worked as Lead Consultant for the Labour Ward in the Coombe Women and Infants University Hospital, and has been a leading advocate for improvement in maternity services and woman-centered healthcare.
In her new role, Dr Mullally will provide clinical leadership for the ongoing implementation of evidence based, quality-assured, accessible services for people who require termination of pregnancy.
There were fewer than 170 GPs when the service started, but this has doubled to over 340. All the maternity hospitals are providing termination of pregnancy care and ten are providing the full range of services.
