There have been calls for more clarity from the Health Minister about when he knew about the latest CervicalCheck scandal.

It is after it emerged Simon Harris' office wrote to the woman who exposed the major IT glitch at a US lab a month before he says he became aware of the issue.

Simon Harris stated yesterday that his office only learned of the issue on July 10, "when my officials got the figures in relation to 800 women potentially being impacted".However, a letter has revealed that "a private secretary to the Minister for Health wrote on 6 June to the woman whose case exposed the latest CervicalCheck crisis."

Ivan was joined by Stephen Teap Patient representative on the cervical check steering community to get his take on the current situation.
