Cervical Check Sufferer Settles Lawsuit Against HSE In High Court Action

: 06/23/2018 - 11:39

A cervical cancer sufferer has settled her lawsuit in the first smear test case since Vicky Phelan's 2 point 5 million euro settlement.

The terminally ill 61 year old woman in the 'K case' sued the HSE and US Laboratory 'Quest Diagnostics' in a High Court action.

She settled her case yesterday after smear tests in 2009 and 2012 had come back as false negatives.

The woman was only told of the reviewed test results in May of this year while she was undergoing cancer treatment.

Details of the case are confidential and proceedings which only started this month were expedited as the woman was at risk of dying imminently.
