Kilkenny women among 4,300 given retests after HPV screening scare will have results soon

KILKENNY women among the 4,300 who are being offered retests by CervicalCheck arising out of revelations on HPV screening in one of its labs will get their results within four weeks, health authorities have confirmed.

The women were contacted after it emerged Quest Diagnostics, the US-based laboratory carrying out cervical screening, was using the wrong protocol for three years to re-examine slides after they showed low-grade abnormalities.

It applied a HPV virus test on samples from the time they arrived in the lab instead of from the point they were taken.

The Health Services Executive (HSE) has insisted the risk to women is very low and the retest is only “precautionary”.

Regular tests can now take 27 weeks to be returned, but these are prioritised.

A HSE spokesperson said: “We have been working closely with this laboratory to ensure appropriate measures have been put in place to avoid a recurrence of this issue.”
