CervicalCheck update - 25 August 2020

We are happy to announce that Dr Nóirín Russell began her new role as Clinical Director of CervicalCheck yesterday.

Nóirín Russell is a medical graduate of University College Cork, a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland and member of the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecologists. She was awarded her MD in Obstetrics and Gynaecology from University College Dublin in 2010. She pursued further specialty at Necker Enfants Malades Hospital and Descartes University in Paris. Since 2013 she has worked as a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at Cork University Maternity Hospital, Clinical Lead for Colposcopy at University Hospital Kerry and Clinical Senior Lecturer at University College Cork.

Dr. Russell's clinical and research interests include prenatal screening, high-risk pregnancy, patient safety and staff engagement. She is also interested in accessible communication of healthcare information and how the process of shared decision making between patients and doctors optimises medical care.

Fiona Murphy, NSS Chief Executive, said: "We are delighted to welcome Dr Russell to the National Screening Service. Her years of experience both in teaching and practice, in obstetrics and gynaecology, will be a great addition to the CervicalCheck programme. I look forward to working with Dr Russell. I would also like to thank Dr Mason Mohan for her guidance and steady hand as interim Clinical Director, navigating the pause and restarting of the screening programme."
