(Irish Independent) – A Medical Council fitness to practice inquiry heard that consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist Declan Egan told her: “What did you want me to do, stitch it back up, wake you up and ask for your permission?” Dr Egan, of Dangan, Co Galway faces one allegation of poor professional performance in relation to the procedure he carried out on Lorna McKeogh. Mrs McKeogh was 32 at the time, in June 2010, at University College Hospital Galway.
