A Kerry Councillor has called for a full review of all tests carried out under CervicalCheck.
Councillor Damien Quigg, who is a member of the Regional Health Forum, brought a motion to today’s meeting, calling for the HSE to conduct a widescale review of smear tests.
The Sinn Féin councillor also believes the practice of outsourcing smear tests to US labs needs to stop.
Councillor Quigg says a HSE review may have to include tests that were carried out up to ten years ago, and women’s lives depend on it.
He adds the current situation here has precipitated a review of tests in the US.
