Professor Dornan, who chaired Fetal Medicine at Queen’s University Belfast and Health & Life Sciences at the Ulster University in Northern Ireland, passed away after contracting COVID-19.
Tributes from those in the medical field have poured in online, including a statement from Northern Ireland’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Michael McBride, who shared: “I was very saddened and shocked to hear this news. My deepest condolences go to his family and many friends.”
Talking further about Jamie Dornan’s dad, Northern Ireland’s Chief Medical Officer’s statement read, “Professor Dornan made an immense contribution to obstetrics and fetomaternal medicine. He held a number of significant and important leadership roles in the health service both in Northern Ireland and nationally.”
