Supplementary Report of the Scoping Inquiry into the CervicalCheck Screening Programme: Statements (19 Jun 2019) See 1 other result from this debate

Stephen Donnelly: ...deeply worrying. Rightly or wrongly, it paints a picture of secrecy and confusion which Dr. Scally appropriately described as entirely unacceptable.

It is certainly not too much to ask - indeed it is essential - that the HSE and CervicalCheck, which is part of the...
