Dr Áine Carroll was appointed National Director of Clinical Strategy and Programmes at the HSE in November 2012. The National Clinical Programmes were established to improve and standardise patient care throughout the organisation by bringing together clinical disciplines and enabling them to share innovative solutions to deliver greater benefits to every user of HSE services.

All clinical services have interdependencies with each other and the aim of each of the national clinical programmes is to improve individual specialty delivery but also to promote integrated care and team work across services and specialties to ensure that care is provided effectively and seamlessly to patients as they move through the system.

She is a Consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine, past Chair of the Medical Board of the National Rehabilitation Hospital, past President of the Irish Association of Rehabilitation Medicine and Senior Clinical Lecturer, University College Dublin.

Prior to her appointment as National Director, Dr. Carroll was the Clinical Lead of the National Clinical Programme for Rehabilitation Medicine.
