Transplant case a catalogue of errors – Colreavy

12 August, 2011 - by Michael Colreavy TD


Commenting on the outcome of the investigation into the failure to transport Maedbh McGivern to London for a liver transplant, Sinn Féin Sligo North Leitrim TD Michael Colraevy said:

“This was a catalogue of errors. With too many agencies, no co-ordination and no one in overall charge this case is symptomatic of much that is wrong with our health services.

“The lessons from this case need to be learned in other sections of the HSE.

“The recommendations should be implemented without delay.

“I now hope that a suitable transplant becomes available and that the suffering of Maedbh and her family comes to an end as soon as possible.” ENDS
