930. To ask the Minister for Health if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the HSE recently amended its public statement of 6 August 2019 in response to the Independent Rapid Review of Specific Issues in the CervicalCheck Screening Programme as a result of a dispute in the accounts of a phone call which took place between a contributor to the report and an official in his Department; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [18150/20]
The Independent Rapid Review of Specific Issues in the CervicalCheck Screening Programme was commissioned by the HSE and published on 6 August 2019.
Following engagement with one of the contributors to the Review, the HSE published an amendment to its statement on the website on 17 July 2020. I am advised that this statement was agreed between the HSE and the contributor concerned.
