Chelsea have apologised to Dr. Eva Carneiro and her family after she settled her dismissal claim against the club on confidential terms.
Carneiro decided to leave the club after then-manager Jose Mourinho criticised her decision to treat Eden Hazard during the 2-2 draw with Swansea in August.
She took her case to an employment tribunal after private hearings at the start of the year yielded no results.
Chelsea said in a statement: "The club regrets the circumstances which led to Dr Carneiro leaving the club and apologises unreservedly to her and her family for the distress caused.
"We wish to place on record that in running onto the pitch Dr Carneiro was following both the rules of the game and fulfilling her responsibility to the players as a doctor, putting their safety first.
"Jose Mourinho also thanked Dr Carneiro for the excellent and dedicated support she provided as first team doctor and he wishes her a successful career."
