Barrister brings action against Beacon Hospital over alleged treatment refusal (via Irish Times)

Alan Toal claims when he was due to attend his treating physician he was told the hospital had decided not to make an appointment

A barrister has brought High Court proceedings over an alleged refusal by the Beacon Hospital to allow him to get any treatment at the private medical facility.

The action has been brought by Alan Toal BL, who has been a patient at the Beacon for more than a decade where he has been treated and undergone several significant surgeries for spinal and nerve complaints which have seriously impacted on his health.

He has commenced legal proceedings against the Beacon Medical Group, Sandyford Limited, Beacon Hospital Sandyford Limited and Mr Michael Cullen, the chief executive of the Beacon Hospital, aimed at overturning their decision not to allow him to undergo any further treatment at their facility.

Mr Toal claimed that last June when he was due to attend his treating physician at the Beacon, he was informed that the hospital had decided not to make an appointment with him.

He claimed that the decision was taken by Mr Cullen and was made without any prior warning to either him or his treating medical consultant doctor.
