A major review into CervicalCheck is expected to go before Cabinet Ministers this morning.

The Government asked the UKs Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) to examine more than 1,000 smear test results in the wake of last year's scandal.

The review was aimed at trying to find out if there were any failures to prevent cancer or to intervene at an earlier stage.

The results have already been shared with the women involved.

The women were told whether there was any failure to identify abnormal cells, and if this meant cancer could have been diagnosed at an earlier stage.

Women were also informed if the RCOG review of the slide was the same as the original review.

The summary report has since been submitted to the Health Minister Simon Harris. He is expected to bring it before cabinet colleagues this morning.

It is likely to be published this afternoon.
