Written 1 week ago by Mary Kate Findon


Doctors connected with more than one case of medical negligence should have action taken against them, according to the head of a powerful Oireachtas Committee.

Sean Fleming says it’s something the Public Accounts Committee will have to examine in the future.

It’s after the State Claims Agency told politicians the current cases of medical negligence will cost 2.4 billion euro to settle.

Laois Fianna Fáil TD Sean Fleming says more questions need to be asked about the more than 3,000 cases of negligence.
