Kerry hospital recalls 72 patients after doctor's errors

A total of 72 patients have been recalled to University Hospital Kerry (UHK) after concerns were raised in relation to imaging work overseen by a doctor who no longer works at the hospital.

The radiologist was employed as a full-time locum between March 2016 and July 2017.

That number could rise further as more than 12,000 scans have yet to be scrutinised.

To date, 33,950 scans have been reviewed from a total of 46,235.

The x-rays, cat scans and ultrasounds included in the review involve 26,756 individual patients. Imaging has been reviewed in relation to 20,367 patients.
