Specialist Registration

It has now become more important than ever to ensure that you are registered on the Register of Medical Specialists. 

The Minister for Health has warned that public and private hospitals could face closure in the future if they continue to have Doctors without specialist training working in Consultant positions. The High Court has also expressed serious concerns that Doctor's should be holding themselves out as specialists when they are not on the Specialists Register and have been critical of the HSE and private hospitals for employing Consultants who are not on the Specialist Register. 

As recently as the 8th of May 2018, the President of the High Court warned the HSE as to the dangers of permitting non-specialist doctors to be appointed as consultants in hospitals and mental health services.
