A ten-member Board oversees the work of the HRB. Board members are appointed by the Minister for Health and serve a five-year term.
The Board meets approximately eight times per year. A record of attendance at meetings and committees is published in our Annual Reports.
The current Chairperson of the Board is Professor Bernadette Hannigan. She has been a member of our Board since 2015, and was appointed to Chairperson by the Minister for Health on 26 April, 2021.
HRB board meetings are held up to seven times a year and we publish minutes to ensure transparency and accountability.
