The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland has requested Galway University Hospital to provide the duty rosters for nursing and midwifery staff at the hospital during the care of Savita Halappanavar.

The rosters are being sought because the Health Service Executive's report is anonymous and the board wants to identify the staff concerned.

The board said that after it reviews the coroner's report in the case and the HSE Clinical Review report, a report will be prepared for the Board of the NMBI for consideration.

Minister for Health James Reilly last week referred the HSE Clinical Review to the board after expressing serious concerns about what it revealed.

The Medical Council, which polices standards among doctors, has said that the HSE's report into the death of Ms Halappanavar is being given attention "as a matter of priority".

Galway University Hospital says it will be co-operating fully with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland's requests for information.
