Patient Advocate Lorraine Walsh Resigns from the Cervical Check Committee
Patient advocate Lorraine Walsh has resigned from the Cervical Check steering committee set up to oversee changes in the programme.
Ms Walsh, who was one of the 221 women whose smear tests were read incorrectly and developed cervical cancer, says has she stepped down over yesterday's report.
UK experts found original test results carried out on the slides of 308 women with cancer were wrong - 159 of those also had missed opportunities for diagnosis.
221+ group spokesperson Stephen Teap from Cork, who's wife Irene died of cervical cancer, says there are questions that need answering:
