Written answers (Question to Health)

As the Deputy will be aware, I am concerned about this incident and remain committed to conducting an external and independent review, so that I can be assured that any patient safety risks are identified and addressed, and that any learnings are disseminated across the health service so that such an event can be avoided in the future

My Department is continuing to engage with the relevant parties to ensure that a further review now takes place. These engagements have been positive and productive, and it is my expectation that this matter will be further progressed in the near future.
