An Implementation Oversight Group has been established by my Department (together with an Implementation Working Group established in the HSE) to oversee the development and implementation of a new model for the delivery of public health medicine in Ireland. I am informed that all work modules are on track and it is intended that the HSE will present a draft future model to my Department for consideration in early September. Engagement with the IMO regarding consultant status and remuneration for specialists in Public Health Medicine will intensify through August and September.
