'I don't know how they sleep' - Vicky blasts cancer docs

'I don't know how they sleep' - Vicky blasts cancer docs

The official defence documents filed by the HSE in Ms Phelan's case show that the state was also denying it had any duty of care towards her husband, who also took part in the action against the HSE and the U.S. lab which carried out the misread test.

"'I just wanted to call you personally to apologise for what has happened to you but he also wanted to thank me for still encouraging women to go for smears and for promoting the Cervical screening programme' he said".

However this was incorrect and by the time she had another smear test in 2014, she had cervical cancer.

The clinical director of the CervicalCheck programme, Dr Grainne Flannelly, has stood down from her role "with immediate effect".

Her resignation comes after it was revealed that 206 women were wrongly diagnosed following routine smear tests.

'I have sent in a senior team to CervicalCheck, they have pulled the files of all 206 women, these are women that would have been in 15 different hospitals around the country, a lot of different clinicians'.

"I have chose to step aside to allow the programme to continue it's important work", she said.

The HSE said treating clinicians were informed about these findings and were asked to communicate with their patients directly where clinically appropriate.

He said earlier: "I have full confidence in the screening programme".

According to the HSE, nearly 1,500 cases of cervical cancer have been notified to the cervical screening programme, CervicalCheck, since it began a decade ago.

Vicky Phelan, the terminally ill woman who brought this issue to light, appeared on the Ray D'Arcy Show on Saturday night to share her story of misdiagnosis. It said it "considered essential that the remainder of the Leadership team of the CervicalCheck Programme remain in situ".

Minister for Health Simon Harris on Saturday told CervicalCheck to facilitate further smear tests for women whose Global Positioning System feel it is necessary.

It comes after Health Minister Simon Harris said he now can't have confidence in the managers of the screening programme.

She was only informed of the misread test past year, and her case only came to light in an audit after she had been diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2014.

A portion of the monies will be paid into court and be held for the couple's two children who are now aged seven and 12.
