Gerard McHale



I’m an NHS GP working in South London, having worked in healthcare across London since 2018. I joined the board of Irish in Britain in November 2021 after graduating from the first Irish in Britain New Leaders Programme, and was elected Treasurer in November 2022.

I’ve lived in the UK for the last 15 years, initially moving to work in finance as part of the post 2008 generation of immigration. I completed my Chartered Accountancy training with PwC in Dublin in 2009 and then worked in several finance roles across London. I returned to university in 2013 to become a doctor.

Prior to moving to the UK, I was involved in the voluntary sector in Ireland, with roles in the Irish Red Cross as well as other organisations in the west of Ireland.

In 2014 I was elected a District councillor in St Albans, serving a four-year term including a year chairing the council’s audit committee.

In my spare time I like to read, travel, follow most sports and  enjoy singing.
