Dr Suzanne Crowe, the President of the Medical Council, has written to all members of the profession, acknowledging the challenges faced during 2022 and the commitment of medical professionals throughout the year.

Recognising the resilience of the profession despite the pressure in the health service, Dr Crowe said: “Pressures in the health service continued, but powerful lessons learned from the early days of the pandemic and cyberattack showed that positive change can happen. And it can happen quickly when there is a will.”

She also highlighted the war in Ukraine and the efforts made by Irish healthcare professionals in this respect: “I am also extremely proud of all those involved in healthcare delivery around the country and how they have stepped up to support and care for those arriving into Ireland, often on top of a very busy existing workload.”

Dr Crowe referenced Irish doctors working abroad, saying: “You may have left for various reasons, and some of the issues that lead you to emigrate may not have been addressed, but there truly is a real feeling that change is happening, and conditions will improve.”

The letter is also available as a video message, which can be viewed at the following link –
