Women in Ireland have been understandably worried following the serious failings in the CervicalCheck audit. The HSE wants to acknowledge this breach of trust and to urge women in Ireland to continue to take part in cervical screening, which is a life-saving public health measure.

Despite the failings in communication during the CervicalCheck audit, the cervical screening programme is safe and effective. We urge all women to routinely avail of routine smear checks to protect their health.
