The Irish Independent have today reported on the commencement of a review of maternity deliveries in University Hospital Galway.
The review is being carried out at the request of the Saolta Women and Children’s Managed Academic Network.
The review is to be carried out by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals external to the Saolta group.
A subgaleal haemorrhage is a bleed under the skin of the head outside of the skull which can occur during a difficult delivery and particularly where the use of a vacuum extractor is required.
Coleman Legal LLP have been contacted by a number of concerned families affected by the diagnosis of a subgaleal haemorrhage following delivery of their babies. We are continuing to work with and support families on their journey to seek answers.
If you and your family have been affected by the diagnosis of a subgaleal haemorrhage / subgaleal haematoma, please do not hesitate to contact us in confidence to discuss the options available to you. More information on subgaleal haemorrhage
