Smear Results For 300 Women Different to Original Cervical Check Results – What Next?

The Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologist’s Independent Review has ascertained that almost one third of test results reviewed were different from the original finding.

That finding indicates that around 300 women from the overall group of 1,050 that participated in the Review were or ought to have been informed that the original results were less than accurate.

Malcomson Law have received inquiries from persons so affected who were quite shocked by these findings.

Undoubtedly, appropriate support services are required of an independent nature over and above what is being provided through the Health Service Executive.

Although, certain concerns exist in the relation to the Royal College of Obstetrician & Gynaecologist’s Review, it should be noted that the Review itself in terms of its findings is somewhat shocking.

Accordingly, there ought to be an onus and obligation upon the Health Service Executive to act in an open and transparent manner in all respects associated with such findings.  An absolute duty of candour should be adhered to in the context of the Cervical Check scandal.

The belated proposed enactment of the Patient Safety Bill is essential to ensure openness and transparency in all Health scandals but most especially the Cervical Check scandal.
