I received a briefing note in relation to a legal case which had been taken against MedLab/Clinical Pathology Laboratories Ltd, a company providing cytopathology for CervicalCheck, and the HSE on 16 April 2018.

I received further information on issues related to the communication of the outcome of the CervicalCheck clinical audit process to women in the period after that legal case became public.

I have published that briefing note and set out the information available to me on the record of the Dail on Tuesday, 1 May 2018, including during questions from the opposition.
