Head of Saolta to become new HSE Regional Executive Officer

THE head of health care group Saolta has been appointed the new Regional Executive Officer to lead HSE West and North West.

In the new role Tony Canavan will form part of the core HSE Senior Leadership Team, providing regional input into the development of national policies and standards.

The HSE is organising service delivery into six health regions as part of the implementation of Sláintecare.


Each Regional Executive Officer will be the accountable officer at Health Region level, responsible for the delivery of high-quality, safe, and accessible services for the population of their region. REOs will report directly to the HSE CEO on the operation and management of the Health Regions.

Speaking to HSE staff today, HSE CEO Bernard Gloster said: “The move to the new regions, and a reformed and repurposed HSE Centre, represents a considerable change to our organisational structures.  I am confident we have assembled a strong team of the six most senior officials in the HSE, reporting directly to me.  Individually and collectively, they bring a broad range of skills and experience, placing them as the healthcare experts who will lead the next phase of health service delivery in Ireland.  I look forward to working with them.  Shortly we will announce the details of the new re-organised HSE Centre, designed to support these regional leaders and ensure excellence in our public services.”
