HSE confirms hundreds of women got incorrect information in CervicalCheck letters

The HSE has confirmed around 400 women have received letters from CervicalCheck containing incorrect information.

Around 800 women, whose repeat smear test results were delayed for months, got a letter this week telling them their HPV status "remained negative".

However, half of the women should have been told their status "remained positive".

The HSE has apologised for "any confusion or distress" the mistake may have caused.
