The Commercial Court has refused to allow a legal row delay the signing of a €57 million contract to provide Beaumont Hospital with blood lab services.

Justice Michael Twomey ruled that patient outcomes at the north Dublin hospital must take priority over a dispute about the procurement process.

Beckman Coulter Diagnostics, the unsuccessful bidder for the lucrative 15 year contract, initiated legal action when the tender went to Roche Diagnostics last June.
