Final review of CervicalCheck published - Crowe Ireland
Dr Scally presenting his 39-page report.

The Crowe consulting team is proud to have assisted Dr Gabriel Scally with his final independent review of the implementation of the recommendations of the Scoping Inquiry into the CervicalCheck Screening Programme, following on from his 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. In particular, the Crowe team – along with consultant cytopathologist Dr Karin Denton – was centrally involved in the investigation into outsourced laboratory services, which uncovered 10 laboratories in the US and UK performing CervicalCheck work without the approval or knowledge of the HSE, one of the central failings highlighted in the 2018 report.

Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly TD, asked Dr Gabriel Scally earlier this year to conduct a final progress review of implementation of the recommendations of his Scoping Inquiry into the CervicalCheck screening programme. Today Dr Scally published his final report, and it showed that while a lot of progress has been made, there is more work required in certain areas. 

Shane McQuillan, consulting partner at Crowe, commented: “Crowe is proud to have supported Gabriel since 2018 in undertaking all his work in relation to the issues regarding the CervicalCheck screening programme. It is heartening to see the progress that has been made in implementing the 58 recommendations.”
