Women in Donegal may have received incorrect smear results

The cervical screening test is sensitive and the nature of screening is not diagnostic, so tests can not always confirm the presence or absence of pre-cancerous changes.

Dr Grainne Flannelly, clinical director at CervicalCheck, has resigned from her position after a smear test scandal revealed 206 women were wrongly misdiagnosed.

Not only were they looking for proof of any personal injury or hurt - but they were also calling on her to prove that this was materially and specifically related to the delay in providing her with her false negative smear test result.

Professor Gráinne Flannelly, the clinical director of the Cervical Check programme, has announced she is standing down from her role.

"I have made a decision to step aside to allow the programme to continue it's important work", she said.

Dr Flannelly said she had chose to step aside to allow the service continue its important work.

The HSE thanked Dr Flannelly in a statement, saying that "she has helped to introduce a programme that has saved the lives of countless women in Ireland through screening and early intervention and who would otherwise have died from cervical cancer". Some of these women are now dead from cervical cancer.

Minister for Health Simon Harris on Saturday told CervicalCheck to facilitate further smear tests for women whose Global Positioning System feel it is necessary.

Vicky Phelan was determined to have cancer three years after her spread test consequences of 2011 were mistakenly detailed as clear of variations from the norm.

Fianna Fail health spokesman Stephen Donnelly said the Government still has many questions to answer over the handling "of a litany of errors relating to the cervical cancer screening programme".

Health Minister Simon Harris has sent in a hit squad to investigate CervicalCheck.

It comes after Health Minister Simon Harris said he now can't have confidence in the managers of the screening programme.

An audit carried out by CervicalCheck in 2014 found that her test results were incorrect, however, due to the reported fault of the programme, Miss Phelan wasn't informed of this until September 2017.

Ms Phelan, a 43-year-old mother of two, has since been diagnosed with terminal cancer and the court case heard she may have only months to live.

A portion of the monies will be paid into court and be held for the couple's two children who are now aged seven and 12.
