Report To Say CervicalCheck Investigation 'Not Needed'


Share this article


A report into the CervicalCheck scandal is expected to say a commission of investigation into what happened is not needed.

Dr Gabriel Scally has been reviewing the cases of 209 women who were diagnosed with cervical cancer, but weren't told about an audit showing false negative smear tests.

Dr Scally briefed the Health Minister on his findings yesterday - and according to the Irish Times, he doesn't think a commission of investigation is needed, despite Simon Harris promising there would be one set up this month.

Stephen Teap, whose wife was one of the women affected, says he's "heartbroken" that the report's been leaked before the families find out about the contents.

The Health Minister, Simon Harris, has asked Dr Scally to brief the representatives of the women and families impacted by the CervicalCheck report today.

Dr Scally reportedly believes there are other ways to deal with the issues raised.

He's also expected to conclude that the labs which carry out testing as part of the screening programme can still be used.

The full report's due to be brought before cabinet tomorrow.
