Statement re Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin (OLCHC)   – November 19, 2018

Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin (OLCHC) cannot discuss individual patient cases. 

The hospital can confirm it is firstly prioritising a review of 335 positive BRCA tests to ensure that the correspondence about the positive BRCA result was communicated correctly to the referring clinician.  

The hospital will then review the negative BRCA tests to ensure that the correspondence about the negative BRCA result was communicated correctly to the referring clinician.

We want to offer reassurance to all patients who have undergone BRCA testing at OLCHC that there is no concern regarding the accuracy of the result of the BRCA tests.

Patients can contact a dedicated Genetics helpline at OLCHC: Tel  01 4096219 Mon-Fri 9am-5.30pm.
