Cancer patient settlement €2.5M by High Court

Harris took to Twitter to confirm the repeat tests.

Ms Phelan, who waited three years to learn CervicalCheck had an internal report on her misdiagnosis, said: "The fact the head of the national screening programme could not say this morning that these women had been communicated with to me is absolutely disgraceful.

I do believe in the programme, cervical smears do save women's lives and what I don't want to happen is more women diagnosed with cervical cancer and I thought it was important that I come out and say that because I think people would listen to me rather than the HSE at the moment".

THE CLINICAL DIRECTOR of Cervical Check, Dr Gráinne Flannelly has informed the HSE that she is to stand aside from her position. I have chose to step aside to allow the Programme to continue it's important work'. They will investigate if all 206 women were told by hospital doctors that they should have been called back for their cancer screening test to be checked.

It's after a terminally-ill Limerick woman was wrongly given the all clear in 2011.

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".

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is now reviewing cases from hundreds of women in Ireland who may have been wrongly given negative results by the national cervical cancer screening programme.

In addition to seeking detailed information about the state of her health, they also asked her to specifically prove that she was likely to die earlier than expected as a result of her mishandled smear test. It said it "considered essential that the remainder of the Leadership team of the CervicalCheck Programme remain in situ".

She was only informed of the misread test previous year, and her case only came to light in an audit after she had been diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2014.

Meanwhile, Health Minister Simon Harris has sent a new management team into CervicalCheck after expressing no confidence in the current management.

A bit of the settlement will be paid into court and be held for the couple's two kids who are presently matured seven and 12.
