Statement on the death of RCP registrar Donal O'Donoghue

RCPCH Registrar Dr Mike Linney shares his sadness at the death of his counterpart at the Royal College of Physicians, Professor Donal O'Donoghue.

Dr Mike Linney said:

Donal was a great friend to the College and a reliable source of sound advice and kindness. He always made himself available and was a great advocate for young people and young adults. I mark this as the loss of a great friend. I met Donal through our shared roles, and we worked closely together on policy and practice around COVID and wider general medicine. He worked with a very cohesive team, who clearly held him in high regard. I will miss him, and my thoughts are with his family, loved ones, and colleagues.
