The Crowe Consulting team will be assisting Dr Gabriel Scally with his final independent review of CervicalCheck, following on from Dr Scally’s initial inquiry into the HSE-run cervical screening service in 2018. Crowe previously supported Dr Scally with a range of analytical and logistical support during the 2018 inquiry and the subsequent progress reviews in 2019.
Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly TD, has asked Dr Gabriel Scally to conduct a final progress review of implementation of the recommendations of his Scoping Inquiry into the CervicalCheck screening programme. Dr Scally has agreed it is now timely to conduct a final progress review and is commencing the work this month (January 2022).
Shane McQuillan, consulting partner at Crowe, commented: “Crowe was proud to support Gabriel Scally in his previous CervicalCheck reviews, and whilst huge progress has been made in improving the service, it’s important that this final review should deliver an objective assessment to help restore public confidence in this vital screening service. We will be working with Gabriel over the coming months to meet that objective.”
Minister Donnelly commented: "Through the recommendations from his reports, Dr Scally has already made a considerable contribution to developments in our health system and ensuring Ireland has a robust screening service, which will enable our progress towards the ultimate goal of elimination of cervical cancer. Progressing this final review is in line with our Programme for Government commitments, including the advancement of the women’s health agenda. I’d like to acknowledge Dr Scally’s continued commitment to this important work, and my department looks forward to engaging with him and key stakeholders in completing this review in 2022."
Crowe’s consulting department advises a wide range of clients across diverse sectors, including the government, healthcare, not-for-profit and commercial sectors.
