Miscarriage Misdiagnosis Review To Be Published

The Health Service Executive will publish a report later today looking into the miscarriage misdiagnosis scandal.

Last June an inquiry was launched following reports that some women were misinformed that their babies were dead.

The inquiry, chaired by Professor William Ledger of the Royal College of Obstetrics in the UK, examined cases in the past five years where drugs or surgical treatment was recommended following an inaccurate diagnosis of miscarriage.
