Live medical negligence claims are set to cost the state more than €2 billion

The State Claims Agency has told the Oireachtas Public Accounts Committee, on which sits Kildare North TD, Catherine Murphy, there are 113 cases that will cost more than 10 million euro each to settle.

PAC Chairman Seán Fleming says the cause of the high payouts needs to be investigated as that money could be used to improve other aspects of the health sector:
