The National Maternity Hospital in Holles Street is to commission an external review into the circumstances of a termination of a pregnancy earlier this year.

Issues have arisen regarding the interpretation of the tests on which the diagnosis was given.
The Minister for Health has been informed of the issue.
The review is to be conducted by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in Britain.
