THE FINAL report into the death of Savita Halappanavar, pictured, will incorporate much of the concerns and comments of her husband.

Praveen Halappanavar's legal team met with the HSE clinical review team last month and laid out their concerns about the care of Ms Halappanavar (31), and details they wished to see included in the report.

The final report is now due to be completed within a fortnight and Mr Halappanavar's concerns have been taken into account, according to his solicitor Gerard O'Donnell.

"We have been told that much of what we said has been incorporated by way of separate observations," said Mr O'Donnell.

Mr Halappanavar is also set to request a meeting with Health Minister James Reilly prior to the public release of a report into the death of his wife.

The inquest into Ms Halappanavar's death, on October 28, 2012 at Galway University Hospital, concluded on April 19 and recorded a verdict of death as a result of medical misadventure.
