A round-table discussion has taken place between the main stakeholders in the introduction of abortion services. The Minister for Health, Simon Harris, the Chairman of the Institute of Gynaecologists and Obstetricians, Dr Peter Boylan, and officials from Department of Health met last week to discuss the issue.
Concerns were raised last month at the Oireachtas Committee on Health over the need for the Department, the HSE and clinical stakeholders to meet about the service which is expected to be up and running in January.
