Expressions of Interest – Two Vacancies on University of Limerick Hospitals Group Board

In accordance with the Government’s decision to widen the opportunity for board membership of State Bodies, the Minister for Health, Dr James Reilly TD, invites expressions of interest from suitably qualified and experienced persons for two vacancies on the administrative board of the University of Limerick Hospitals Group. This is an exceptional opportunity to contribute your expertise to a significant part of the health reform agenda and make a positive difference to patients and their families.

Applicants for these two positions should have specific expertise in either or both:

  • legal compliance and due diligence
  • corporate risk

In line with principles of good governance, individuals with conflicts of interest, including employees of the Health Service Executive, will not be appointed to the board.

The University of Limerick Hospitals Group includes the following hospitals:

  • University Hospital Limerick
  • UL Hospitals Ennis Hospital
  • UL Hospitals Nenagh Hospital
  • UL Hospitals St John’s Hospital
  • UL Hospitals Croom
  • University Maternity Hospital

The development of hospital groups is part of the Programme for Government 2011 – 2016 and is one of the most significant changes in Irish healthcare in many years. The establishment of University of Limerick Hospitals Group will provide the governance and organisational structure needed for change, with more autonomy, better enabling the reorganisation of acute hospital services in the region in a well-planned manner, to deliver uniformly high standards of clinical care for patients.
