It comes on the anniversary of abortions being made available.
Dr Aoife Mullally has been appointed the clinical lead on termination services for the HSE.
It comes on the anniversary of abortions being made available in Ireland - with just 350 GPs across the country providing the procedures.
Dr Mullally has worked in maternity wards in the Coombe and in Portlaoise.
Orla O'Connor, from the National Women's Council of Ireland, has welcomed the move - but says there's more to do:
As we approach the anniversary of the introduction of abortion services into Ireland following the overwhelming vote of the people to repeal the 8th, I am delighted we are appointing Dr @AoifeMullally to be the new Clinical Lead for this service. She will have my full support https://t.co/4XILsFPVsy— Simon Harris TD (@SimonHarrisTD) December 31, 2019
