Health Board pledges to 'examine recommendations'

The inquest, of which we were unaware because GPs are independent contractors and no referral had been made to Health Board specialists of Mr. Rafferty, has only concluded this afternoon.

We have not yet received any notification from the Coroner's office and it would therefore be inappropriate to comment until the Health Board has received notification.

Once received we will examine the recommendations and take appropriate action.
