The Taoiseach has re-registered as a medical doctor.
Leo Varadkar left the medical register in 2013, after serving as a doctor for ten years.
Last month the HSE had called for healthcare workers who had left the register to return to the workforce to help with the Covid-19 pandemic.
It’s understood he will work a session a week to help out in an area suited to his qualifications.
His partner and his two sisters and their husbands, all work in the health services.
