The HSE's confirmed there are more women caught up in the latest CervicalCheck controversy, on top of the 800 revealed yesterday.
It centres around a computer glitch at Quest Diagnostics laboratories in Virginia in the USA.
Yesterday it was revealed around 800 women who were having HPV tests rechecked, didn't get their results due to an IT glitch at the Quest Diagnostics Chantilly facility in Virginia.
It centred on tests carried out from late last year to June this year.
Today the HSE has confirmed it's also aware of a very small number of people affected outside of this recheck group and is following up on those cases as part of its response.
Clinical Director of the Women and Infants' Health Programme , Dr Peter Mc Kenna said today, the incident is being investigated at the highest level, this includes investigating with Quest Diagnostics whether any more patients have been affected and more information is being urgently requested by the HSE and CervicalCheck.
