Savita’s Medical Notes




Some background:

The seven-member HSE internal inquiry team was led by Prof Sabraratnam Arulkumaran, head of obstetrics and gynaecology at St George’s University of London.

Three members of the original inquiry team were from Galway University Hospital, with the final three being an employee from Cork University Hospital,a patient advocate and a representative from the HSE National Incident Management Team.

After Savita’s husband Praveen Halappavanar complained about the presence of three employees from the Galway hospital, the HSE replaced them.

The three were replaced with Professor James Walker, of St James Hospital in Leeds, Dr Brian Marsh, of the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital and Professor Mary Horgan, of Cork University Hospital.
