The Department of Health has this evening confirmed that a senior medical team has been sent into Cervical Check to take charge of the programme.

A TD from Westmeath says women must be able to have confidence in the Cervical Check programme.

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. Some of these women are now dead from cervical cancer. I have made a decision to step aside to allow the Programme to continue it's important work'.

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

Mumbai restricted Chennai to 169-5 then overhauled it with 170-2 with two balls remaining for only its second win in seven games. However, if there is one team which can bounce back rather dramatically to qualify from here it has to be Mumbai Indians .

The HSE said the worldwide peer review, agreed with Minister Simon Harris during this week, will determine any learnings and opportunities for improvement within the CervicalCheck Programme.

A Donegal solicitor believes there are a number of women in Donegal who have been told their smear tests were clear of any abnormalities when in fact this may not be the case.

The HSE is confident that, in keeping with the usual principles of natural justice, the Minister would expect that this peer review would be completed and appropriate procedures followed before there is any judgement passed on the role of the clinical and managerial leadership of the programme.

The lid was blown on the CervicalCheck cancer earlier this month when Limerick mum-of-two Vicky Phelan, 43, took a High Court case against the HSE and the Texas-based lab which distributed her smear test results in 2011.

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

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.

This week Mrs Phelan was awarded €2.5 million from the high Court, which she said would go towards making her final days more comfortable for her and her two young children.
