The Walker Report, which was the report of an external review into maternity services in Portiuncula University Hospital, was published on 3 May 2018. The report made 35 key recommendations under five themes: Environment, Training, Clinical Care, Staffing, and Communication issues. The HSE established an Implementation Group to progress these recommendations and I understand that to date significant progress has been made to implement these 35 recommendations. I am advised that as of March 2019, 95% of the recommendations were complete or nearly completed.
I have asked the HSE to reply directly to you with regard to the current status of the implementation of the recommendations.
