    A review into the work of a locum consultant radiologist has so far identified "major discrepancies" affecting 12 cases. A full lookback review of 13,030 radiology images was launched last month. The doctor worked at hospitals run by the Northern Health Trust between July 2019 and February 2020. The review steering group chair said it was "images in levels one and two that we are most concerned about". "To date there are 12 level ones and twos [approximately 0.5% of the total number reviewed]," said Dr Seamus O'Reilly, the Northern Trust medical director. "Most of thes

The investigation was carried out by the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman (PHSO), which deal

In 2019, HIQA received 68 notifications of significant events of accidental or unintended medical exposures to patients in public and private facilities, which is a small percentage of significant incidents relative to the total number of procedures taking place which can be conservatively estimated at over three million exposures a year.The most common erro

    Findings In 2019, HIQA received 68 notifications of significant events of accidental or unintended medical exposures to patients in public and private facilities, which is a small percentage of significant incidents relative to the total number of procedures taking place which can be conservatively estimated at over three million exposures a year. The most common errors reported were patient identification failures, resulting in an incorrect patient receiving an exposure. These errors happened at various points in the patient pathway which, while in line with previous reporting nation
