@ Kevin McCann, good question. A statutory process would be the private investigation and public report of a Commission of Investigation under the Commission of Investigation Act introduced to provide a fast, efficient, less lawyered and cumbersome than a Public Tribunal of Inquiry. There should be a legally rigorous and powerful investigation. Although I can see merit in a HIQA inquiry, it’s role is legally confined to standards of hospital care and would not have the vires/ power to look at wider issues such as the legal and ethical dimension. It has no role in regulation of clinicians. There are many other disadvantages but my postings tend to be far too long and I’ll try to limit to core points.
