Description:
In November 2009 an investigation was initiated by the Ombudsman for Children under Section 8 of the Ombudsman for Children Act, 2002 (the Act). The investigation was based on a complaint received by this Office in relation to the administrative actions of the Health Service Executive (HSE) and how they may have affected a child. Under Section 13(2) of the Act, following an investigation, the Ombudsman for Children is required to produce a statement outlining the results. In accordance with the Act, this statement is for distribution to the public body under investigation, the complainant, other relevant parties involved in the investigation and any other persons to whom the Ombudsman for Children considers it appropriate to send the statement. This Office is conscious of the time taken to date in concluding the investigation. However there have been a number of external factors which required consideration at various points in time with respect to the remit of the investigation and the best interests of the child. While this complaint was being considered and investigated by this Office a number of incidents and issues have arisen for the child affecting her health and wellbeing that necessitated the ongoing interaction between the HSE and the complainant on behalf of the child. In 2010, the complainant also sought that the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) re-examine the case to decide whether the substantive criminal allegation should be the subject of a criminal prosecution. That decision not to prosecute was communicated to the complainant in June 2010.
