The parents of a baby boy who died following complications during delivery at Cavan General Hospital have received an independent report into the circumstances surrounding his death.

The HSE confirmed last night that the final report into the death in November 2012 had been received.

A spokesman said representatives from the HSE have met the baby's parents and have again expressed their regret for the loss they have experienced.

"The parents have been furnished with the final independent report and they have been given a commitment that the report's recommendations will be addressed," the spokesman said. "The HSE also acknowledges the trauma the staff of the hospital have undergone."

The baby boy was born at Cavan General Hospital on November 22. There was a complication during the birth and the baby died two days later.

The report, carried out by the National Maternity Hospital, Dublin, has not yet been published.
