Dr O’Hagan will oversee the creation of a single, all-island treatment network for congenital heart disease
“I’m delighted that we are making significant progress on this important project and that we have appointed someone of the calibre of Dr O’Hagan to the new Network Board,” said Minister Leo Varadkar.
“The Network for Congenital Heart Disease will ensure that a very vulnerable group of sick children and young people get the best level of care, no matter where they come from on the island. It will bring together everyone working in this area to ensure that we can provide the best level of care, wherever they come from.”
In addition to his role as CEO of the RCPI, Dr O’Hagan is the Chairman of Northern Ireland Water.
“It makes so much sense to develop healthcare through North-South co-operation,” said Minister Varadkar.
“ We should never allow politics or jurisdictional issues get in the way of what is best for patients and their families.”
