Plans to build the new National Maternity Hospital were thrown into more chaos yesterday after the resignation of another top doctor.

Prof Chris Fitzpatrick has said he felt he was left with no alternative but to stand down from the Board planning the new €300million facility.

He said he was doing so in support of Dr Peter Boylan, who resigned the previous day, adding that he shared his fears about gifting the new facility to the Sisters of Charity.

Prof Fitzpatrick said it is absolutely critical that there is total separation between church and medicine, especially when it comes to female reproductive healthcare.
