Nine members of an Irish medical team that treated Indian dentist Savita Halappanavar, who died after being denied a potentially life-saving abortion when she was found to be miscarrying in 2012, have been disciplined with written warnings issued to some of them.

The Health Service Executive (HSE) on Friday confirmed that disciplinary action has been taken against nine staff members at University Hospital Galway following a probe into the death of Savita in October 2012.

Twenty-one other staff members at the hospital have been told that they have “no case to answer”, RTE News reported.

The HSE said the disciplinary process against most of the nine staffers involved is now complete.

It said warnings, including written warnings, were issued to some staff and pre-procedural informal counselling with training and mentoring was applied to others.

There have been no dismissals or suspensions.
