The clinical director of BreastCheck says it'll be months before the screening service is back to normal. Professor Ann O'Doherty says there are "huge challenges" in resuming services and that it's still not possible to give a timeline of when they'll be back up and running. Also - the Minister for Health is set to be quizzed in the Dáil this afternoon over when essential cancer screening services will restart. Ciara chats to Susan Mitchell, Health Correspondent with the Sunday Business Post, and hears from listeners.
