Labour Party Health spokesperson, Alan Kelly TD, has called on the Minister for Health to set out when the RCOG review will be released. The RCOG review into CervicalCheck was due to be published in October.

Deputy Kelly said:

“The Government have moved the goalposts several times when it comes to the RCOG review into CervicalCheck, we were first given an unrealistic deadline of May, and then told it would be published in October, yet here we are in November and no sign of the report.

“Timelines keep changing on this important report, and women and their families at the centre of this scandal, are being kept in the dark as to when this review will be finally published.

“Time and time again I have said that his review was never going to be completed when promised. There are real issues here. In all these cases the women are waiting to find out if they have issues to deal with. It is not acceptable that these timelines are so far out.

“The Minister for Health needs to confirm today when this vital report will be published.”
