Mother settles case over hospital care
A mother of two with breast cancer who sued over the care she received at two hospitals in Dublin and Cork has settled her High Court action.
Joan O’Sullivan, who has a mutation gene which means she is at higher risk of cancer, claimed she suffered an alleged delay in the diagnosis and treatment of her cancer and as a result her life expectancy may have been reduced. The settlement of the case came on the second day of the hearing. The details of the settlement are confidential. Mr Justice Michael Hanna said he was glad to hear of the settlement and he wished Ms O’Sullivan, of McDonagh Court, Old Road, Cashel, Co Tipperary, the very best.
