Voting to Continue in Medical Council Elections

The voting period for the election of medical members to the Medical Council will continue until 5pm on Tuesday 26th March.  The poll had been due to close today (15th March 2013), however the Returning Officer made the decision that voting should continue.  There has been strong interest from the profession in these elections and the longer voting period will provide an enhanced opportunity for doctors to exercise their democratic right to vote.

Voting is being conducted through the Medical Council’s online portal for doctors which was launched in May 2012. While many doctors have successfully activated their accounts since then, in recent days, there has been an increased demand for support by doctors to activate and navigate this process.

Doctors can vote, and also view video guidance on activating their portal accounts at: Dedicated supports will remain in place via email to or via phone at 01-498 3160.
