Calls for inquiry chair to resign

The mother of a Derry girl whose death is one of five being investigated by a public inquiry has called for the chairman to resign.

Marie Ferguson’s daughter Raychel died at the Royal Hospital in 2001 having been treated at Altnagelvin hospital.

Mrs Ferguson said she does not think Mr John O’Hara is the right man for the job.

The inquiry has only sat in full public session for one day and further delays have now been announced.

“The only people I feel this is suiting at the minute is the trust and the more these delays go on other children could be at risk in hospitals,” she said.

“That would be my fear in case any other parent would have to go through what we’re going through now at the minute.”
