Free smears for Kildare woman on Cervicalcheck programme

The HSE has said that 17 women who were affected by the CervicalCheck controversy have died.

A briefing note was prepared for Health Minister Simon Harris over a week before a settlement was reached in Vicky Phelan's High Court case.

The revelation, described by Labour's Alan Kelly as a "bombshell", raises the prospect that hundreds more women could find their smear tests were misread.

"For any woman who has had a CervicalCheck smear test and where her GP feels she should have a further test as part of her reassurance, the Minister has asked CervicalCheck to make the necessary arrangements, including payment provision".

"We would again like to thank Vicky Phelan, who through her unwavering strength and courage, has shone a spotlight on an issue that strikes at the core of cancer patient care in Ireland", the statement read.

A review conducted by the HSE confirmed 208 women should have received earlier intervention than they did but only 46 individuals were made aware of this. However, it has now emerged 1,518 were not.

Mr Harris also said he is appointing an worldwide clinical panel.

The Irish Cancer Society has called for an urgent meeting with the Health Minister to discuss the wide range of issues that have occurred in wake of the CervicalCheck scandal.

"I think everyone, even Tony O'Brien, deserves a fair hearing before they are condemned".

Leo Varadkar said the Health Minister will outline what he knew in the Dáil later. In 2014, an audit found this was incorrect but she was not informed of the outcome of that review until late 2017.

Ms Phelan, who was awarded €2.5 million in a settlement against a U.S. lab last week over a false negative smear test in 2011, has said she was very upset at the revelation that that there had been 17 deaths.

"I don't believe that for one minute". I mean he's the Director General of the HSE.

Ms Phelan said she did not want to see an inquiry or tribunal into the affair that would be dragged out and protracted for years.

Ms Phelan said she was contacted by the Taoiseach's press adviser on Tuesday evening asking to arrange a private meeting."I said yes, I would meet him in principle, but I'm trying to concentrate on my treatment which I have to go to this week and said that I would get back to him", she said.
