THE CHAIRMAN of the HSE’s Emergency Task Force is to resign after less than a year in the job.
Dr Tony O’Connell was appointed last May as HSE National Director for Acute Hospitals and Chairman of the Emergency Department Task Force.
He was also a member of the HSE Directorate.
The HSE has confirmed he will return to Queensland in a few weeks to rejoin his wife, who is taking up a top academic post there.
Dr O'Connell is originally from Australia, where he was director general of the Queensland public health system.
