The minister has been informed of the issue and the Department of Health acknowledged the “distress” that the parents have experienced as a result of the events.
In a statement, Holles Street said it does not comment on individual cases. It confirmed that it has asked the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists to review a recent case at the hospital.
The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in Britain has told RTÉ News that it has not yet received a formal approach to undertake the review into the circumstances of a termination of pregnancy at the National Maternity Hospital in Holles Street.
The RCOG said in a statement: “Should an approach be forthcoming, this will be considered in the usual way.”
