Dr. Michael Scully opened his statement by offering his sincere sympathies to Praveen Halappanavar on the death of his wife.

He wasn’t present in court as he asked to be excused from proceedings today following a difficult week.

Mr. Scully said he wanted to apologise to Praveen if a conversation heldon October 26th had caused his any distress and wanted to clarify matters.

He told the inquest that he was one of a number of ICU consultants who had
received formal training in relation to a research study on acute respiratory distress syndrome and that he had been approached by a research nurse who felt Savita may have been a suitable patient for the study.

He detailed how he followed protocol in seeking consent from the patient’s next of kin Praveen, and discussed it with him in a sympathetic manner.

He assured him there was no coercion to take part and later received a call from Praveen who said he did not wish for Ms. Halappanavar to take part.

Barrister Eugene Gleeson said it was an unfortunate misunderstanding and these things happen and said his client accepts his apology.
