We need to keep our women safe and attached up to date information from the HSE in relation to the Cervical Scandal .
The HSE Serious Incident Management Team (SIMT) has been working to respond to the failings revealed by the CervicalCheck audit. This report will be provided daily to outline and provide a progress update on the response to this situation.
CervicalCheck carried out an audit of women who had been diagnosed with cervical cancer over the last 10 years. The audit happened after their cancer was notified to CervicalCheck. Not all of these women were told about the audit or that, in some cases, the audit found their screening test could have provided a different result and recommended earlier follow-up.
