Written answers (Question to Health)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 1597 and 1628 together.

The CervicalCheck Tribunal was established on 27 October 2020 under the CervicalCheck Tribunal Act 2019. Establishment of the Tribunal was finalised with the appointment of the nominated members to the Tribunal with effect from 1 December 2020.

The Tribunal has indicated to my Department that it has received eight claims. I am advised that there has been further interest expressed in using the Tribunal, and it is anticipated that additional claims will be received.

The Tribunal is the most appropriate venue to hear and determine CervicalCheck claims. It has been specifically designed for that purpose. It is, of course, entirely up to eligible women as to whether or not they use it.
