Group to be made up of 'entirely independent' representatives
The Taoiseach says the 3 doctors from University Hospital Galway who were to sit on an inquiry into the death of Savita Halappanavar will not now do so.
It comes after the husband of the 31-year-old declared he would not co-operate with the inquiry because of the inclusion of the doctors on the team.
This afternoon Enda Kenny told the Dáil that Health Minister James Reilly had instructed the inquiry be made up of people with no association with the hospital.
These were Prof. John J. Morrison, Dr. Catherine Fleming and Dr. Brian Harte.
All hold various posts at the hospital where Mrs. Halappanavar died last month.
