Questioning of expert witness, Dr. Peter Boylan, a former Master at the National Maternity Hospital has now concluded.

Earlier, Dr.Boylan told the inquest that had Ms.

Halappanavar had a termination on the Monday of Tuesday of her time in hospital, it is highly likely she would not have died.

However he noted it was NOT a practicable position at that time because of the law as there was not a real and substantial risk to her life at that stage.

Following lengthy questioning by Barrister Eugene Gleeson, Dr.Boylan was questioned by HSE Senior Counsel Declan Buckley.

He asked if the rarity of this case is a difficulty visited upon nurses, doctors and right up to consultants – the expert witness agreed.

Legal representative Eileen Barrington also took up questioning.

She referred to a paragraph in the medical council guidelines related to exceptional circumstances where termination may be considered and asked would the rupturing of membranes have constituted this – the expert replied ‘No’.

His questioning has now concluded and Dr. Boylan has been discharged by the Coroner.

Dr. Frans Colesky is now giving his witness statement – he carried out the post mortem on the placenta.
