HSE reponds to leaks on McElwee Investigation

January 30th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Athlone Institute of Technology, HSE, Niall McElwee

I rang the HSE press office this afternoon to get the full scéal so to speak. I spelt out my blog name to the nice man on the phone and he said he’d be back to me.

And true to form (ok ok not true to form at all…) Surprise surprise… They rang me back and even emailed a response.

The HSE is committed to establishing the full facts of what information was available to the health services in relation to Dr McElwee. The HSE expects to receive the report from Mr Conall Devine, the inquiry’s independent chair in the coming days.

Upon receipt of the report, the HSE will consider its findings and consult with its legal representatives with a few to its publication.

So no surprise there then really but then again as I’ll outline later this should not really have been the HSE’s issue in the first place. This should have been in the remit of the HEA and the Department of Education.

I’ll post tomorrow on my predictions for the report based on my background knowledge so far (far too much really) and the information given by Ciaran Mullooly in his report on RTE today.
