The ICGP has welcomed the Minister for Health’s announcement of increased funding for women’s health services and resourcing for a new post of Clinical Lead for Women’s Health in General Practice.
The Minister was speaking at today’s (22 May) ICGP annual conference, which was held virtually and attended by over 1,000 GPs throughout the morning.
The new ICGP post of Clinical Lead for Women’s Health in General Practice, the first such post in Ireland, will enable the development of a comprehensive life-course approach to women’s health in general practice.
The ICGP’s Assistant Medical Director, Dr Noirin O’Herlihy, said: “We welcome this announcement and commitment by the Minister to improve the provision of services for women’s health, and resources for this new Clinical Lead.
“This is a significant development and we look forward to developing a range of new educational and support services for GPs to enhance women’s health services in their practices.”
