Hayes Report Review of Radiology Reporting and the Management of GP referral letters at Tallaght Hospital

In November 2010, the HSE published its independent report into the unreported x-rays and management of GP referral letters at Tallaght Hospital. The HSE would like to acknowledge the commitment of the Chairman, Dr. Maurice Hayes, and his team in producing such a comprehensive report. 

The HSE accepted the findings of the report and has been working with Tallaght Hospital on an implementation plan to ensure that all of the recommendations are acted on. Tallaght Hospital has accepted Dr Hayes’ findings and has undertaken to implement in full the recommendations to ensure that the issues arising for the hospital are addressed in a timely manner. 

March and August 2012 - Updates

Progress reports on the implementation of the recommendations of the Hayes Review were published by the HSE in March 2012 and again in August 2012; they are appended to this page as a pdf.
