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.
