HSE confirms investigation into Tallaght x-ray scandal

The HSE says a review will be carried out to determine why almost 58,000 x-rays were not read by a consultant radiologist at Tallaght Hospital over a five-year period.

HSE officials met with the management at the hospital this afternoon to discuss the massive back-log.

Other hospitals are now being contacted to ensure the same thing has not happened there.
