As part of the investigation into the Republic of Ireland’s CervicalCheck screening programme, the Irish Minister of Health has commissioned the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) to carry out an independent review into elements of the programme. The aim is to provide women who participated in the national CervicalCheck screening programme and who developed invasive cervical cancer with independent clinical assurance about the timing of their diagnosis and treatment. The review will be led by the RCOG with clinical expertise from the British Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (BSCCP).
Full details of the review, including its terms of reference and the information provided to women, is available on the Health Service Executive website.
Any queries about the review should be directed to Press_Office_Dept_Health@health.gov.ie or email@example.com.
