Dr Peter Boylan role in assisting implementation of abortion services ‘extremely welcome’ – O’Reilly
Speaking this afternoon, Sinn Féin Health spokesperson Louise O’Reilly TD has welcomed the announcement that Dr Peter Boylan will help assist the HSE in implementing abortion services.
Teachta O’Reilly said:
“I would like to congratulate Dr Boylan on his appointment to help assist the HSE in implementing abortion services. Dr Boylan is an eminent and accomplished clinician who has been to the forefront of women’s healthcare in this State for many years.
“As a consultant obstetrician, a former chairman of the Institute of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, and a former master of the National Maternity Hospital, he is exceptionally well qualified for this role.
“Dr Boylan played a prominent role in the campaign to remove the 8th Amendment from the constitution and he provided excellent evidence and information to the Oireachtas 8th Amendment Committee prior to the referendum.
“I look forward to working with Dr Boylan to ensure that the health service provides world class abortion care for our people and that the ancillary recommendations of the report of the 8th Amendment Committee are implemented in full.”
