A Clare TD believes confidence in University Hospital Limerick will be completely undermined if an upcoming report doesn’t result in reform at the facility.

It comes as the Health Minister has confirmed former Chief Justice Frank Clarke’s report into the death of Shannon teenager Aoife Johnston will be published by the end of May this year.

The 16-year-old passed away on a trolley at the Dooradoyle facility in 2022 due to sepsis complications after a 12-hour wait in the emergency department, and the HSE stated at the beginning of January that the report into her care at the facility would be published within eight weeks.



Scariff Independent TD Michael McNamara claims the HSE is intent on effecting change at the facility based on the findings of the report.
