Mother set­tles case over hos­pi­tal care

Irish Examiner - - News -

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.
