This website has been developed by the Civil Service CMO’s Office which incorporates the Civil Service Occupational Health Department. It is intended to provide information about the office to both staff and employers in the Civil Service.

The Office of the Chief Medical Officer (CMO), which incorporates the Civil Service Occupational Health Department (CSOHD), is based in Dublin city centre. The staff consists of doctors, nurses and administration staff. All doctors are on the Medical Councils Register of Medical Specialists in Occupational Medicine, and all nurses have postgraduate qualifications in Occupational Health.

The CSOHD provides occupational health services to the Civil Service, and the CMO provides policy advice on work and health issues in the Civil Service and wider public service. We are part of the Department of Public Expenditure NDP and Reform. Please note that public health issues are dealt with by the CMO’s Office at the Department of Health which is a separate entity to us.
