Cervical Tests and the issue of outsourcing – still waiting for answers
I made several queries at the Dail committee today. Apart from the mess they have made of re-testing, there remain unanswered questions.
Since this time last year, I have been asking what labs gave the wrong results that led to 221 women having their cervical cancer go unnoticed. I believe that labs in the US are the ones involved. They were the cheaper option, a ‘for-profit’ company that failed women like Vikki Phealan. Outsourcing is the root of it. So I’m relieved to know the government intends, eventually, to re-patriate the service. Meantime, I’m still waiting the for the answer.
