A helpline set up for patients of University Hospital Kerry after a review of scans was ordered, has been extended until 10 pm for the next three nights.

It's after 7 patients had serious delayed diagnoses including 3 with cancer, at University Hospital Kerry.

46,000 X-rays, CAT scans and ultrasounds belonging to 26,000 patients are being reviewed.

It's expected to take 10 weeks for the review to be completed.
