Department of Health
128. To ask the Minister for Health if he will establish an independent review into the clinical care provided to a person (details supplied) in Letterkenny University Hospital in October and November 2016 following the concerns of the person's family regarding the serious incident review carried out by Saolta University Health Care Group. [39027/19]
I would like firstly to convey my condolences to the family on their sad loss and to acknowledge the distress and upset experienced by them throughout this difficult time.
I have been in contact with the HSE and have been assured by them that lessons have been learned from the shortcomings in the care provided to the person concerned and the subsequent review of care carried out by the Saolta University Healthcare Group.
I have been also been informed by the HSE that they have offered the family the opportunity to discuss and to fully address the concerns that they may have.
