We’re delighted to welcome Paul Reid back to the PMI to give our members an update on: 

  • where the HSE is versus plan
  • how the HSE has coped during the Covid pandemic
  • impact of Covid on other therapy areas & the healthcare budget 
  • what the next 12 months holds. 

This event is tentatively scheduled to be held in the Clayton Hotel, Liffey Valley on Thursday 4th November.  However, as with all of our events since the beginning of the pandemic this will be subject to HSE guidelines.  If we are unable to hold the event in person, then it will be held online through our webinar platform.   A decision will be made closer to the event time as to whether we can hold the event in person or online.   

Please note, if the event can go ahead in person, we would expect a high-demand of tickets, this along with restrictions to the audience size would mean that this would be a members only event.  


Paul Reid, Chief Executive Officer – HSE 

Paul has led large organisations in the private, not for profit, central and local Government sectors. In May 2019 he was appointed as Chief Executive Officer of the Health Service Executive.  Paul has the privilege of leading over 117,000 dedicated staff who deliver a wide range of health services across Ireland.  Paul is a passionate public servant whose vision for the health service is to focus on long term planning by implementing Sláintecare and delivering effective and safe services within available resources. 

From 2014 to 2019 he was Chief Executive of Fingal County Council, one of the largest Local Authorities in the state.  Under his leadership, Fingal was the leading local authority in terms of social and private housing development.  It also led the way in terms of attracting Foreign Direct Investment and job creation across all sectors, through active land management and working with National State Agencies.   

Between 2011 and 2014, Paul worked as the Chief Operations Officer in the Department of Public Expenditure & Reform.  He was responsible for leading a whole set of reforms across the public service.  In this role he negotiated the Haddington Road Agreement, with the 26 Public Service Trade Unions, to reduce the public service pay bill by €1BN.

From 2010 to 2011, Paul worked as Head of Corporate Affairs with Trócaire, the Irish International Aid Agency.   Whilst there, he worked on an agenda to strengthen the overall governance of the organisation and on the implementation of best practice in HR, Finance, Risk Management and Communications.
