A radiographer has quit his job after a woman alleged she was raped in hospital, it has been revealed.

The man was employed by Alliance Medical to work in the Bon Secours Hospital in Tralee, Co Kerry.

A woman alleged she was raped on September 10 in the radiography unit.

Alliance Medical, which provides diagnostic services and staff to hospitals, confirmed an incident took place involving one of its former employees.

"We wish to alleviate the concerns of patients and the public by making clear that the individual involved is no longer an employee of Alliance Medical and is no longer working at the hospital," a spokeswoman for the company said.

"Alliance Medical is conducting a full internal investigation into the alleged incident."

A Garda spokesman said detectives were investigating an alleged sexual assault.

The healthcare company said it was co-operating fully with the Garda investigation.

It is understood the radiographer resigned his role with Alliance Medical after the allegation was made.
