Resignation of Peter Boylan ‘regrettable’ – O’Reilly

27 April, 2017 - by Louise O'Reilly TD

Responding to the announcement that Dr Peter Boylan has resigned from the Board of the National Maternity Hospital, Sinn Féin Health spokesperson Louise O’Reilly TD said:

“It is regrettable that Dr Boylan has felt the need to resign from the Board of the NMH.  That will be one less critical voice at the table to speak up for the clinical community and those who are concerned about the influence of religious orders in the running of a hospital for which the state will be investing €300 million for its construction. 

“The Minister for Health Simon Harris has not comprehensively addressed the concerns regarding the governance of the proposed hospital and now there will be one less voice to question his inaction.”
