Saturday night saw the HSE confirmed that the clinical director of Cervical Check, Dr Gráinne Flannelly, had stepped down from her post effective immediately, in wake of the recent cervical cancer scandal.

Harris took to Twitter on Saturday to share the news of the repeat tests on offer, which, according to him, will be paid for by the State.

'I have sent in a senior team to CervicalCheck, they have pulled the files of all 206 women, these are women that would have been in 15 different hospitals around the country, a lot of different clinicians'.

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".

Lamar Jackson: Selected by Ravens 32nd overall
ALAMEDA, Calif. - Derek Carr knows what it is like to feel underappreciated as the National Football League draft approaches. If the Ravens pick is in the middle of the second round next year, the Eagles traded away 630 points for roughly 860 points.

The HSE said treating clinicians were informed about these findings and were asked to communicate with their patients directly where clinically appropriate.

The HSE said the global peer review, agreed with Minister Simon Harris during this week, will determine any learnings and opportunities for improvement within the CervicalCheck Programme. In advance of the peer review being completed it is considered essential that the remainder of the leadership team of the programme remain in situ.

During the week, the Fine Gael TD announced that he is now organising for repeat smear tests to be arranged free of charge following the recent news that several cases of cervical cancer have gone misdiagnosed.

Minister Harris did say he has every confidence in the screening process, which he said saved lives.

The 43-year-old Limerick woman inspired many people when she took the decision to speak out about the cervical diagnosis she received in 2017, 6 years after a 2011 smear test which said she was cancer-free.

The Tánaiste apologised in the Dail to the Annacotty woman who was given incorrect test results and is now terminally ill with cervical cancer.

She was diagnosed with cervical cancer around the same time but she only found out about that review a year ago.
