Harris also said that he hoped the HSE or the State would not defend any other cases that may be similar to the Vicky Phelan case, adding that he plans to work with the Government to avoid it.

Responding to the controversy, the Irish Cancer Society extended its sincerest sympathies to Ms Phelan and her family.

An audit carried out by CervicalCheck in 2014 found that her test results were incorrect, however, due to the reported fault of the programme, Miss Phelan wasn't informed of this until September 2017.

This morning, Mr. J Kevin Cross was told the case against the lab had been settled for €2.5m with no admission of liability and the case against the HSE could be struck out.

A bit of the settlement will be paid into court and be held for the couple's two kids who are presently matured seven and 12.

Earlier this week, she settled her High Court action against a USA laboratory for €2.5 million.

The defence documents filed did admit there was some delay informing her about her smear test results.

Last week the High Court heard the smear test of 24 May 2011 showed no abnormality was detected and Ms Phelan was advised by letter in June 2011 the smear test detected no abnormalities.

In July of that year Ms Phelan was diagnosed with cervical cancer and underwent radical chemo-radiotherapy.

A 43-year-old woman who was given mistaken test outcomes and is now critically ill with cervical cancer has settled her High Court activity against a United States lab for €2.5m.

'Then in 2014 she had another smear test which showed that this wasn't the case and that she was now taking action against the lab and the HSE.

"These 206 cases relate to cytology audits that suggested a different result from the original and that would have recommended an investigation to occur at an earlier stage".

The HSE Serious Incident Management Team established on Friday met twice today as a review got underway of 206 cases within the CervicalCheck Programme.

In July of that year Ms Phelan was determined to have cervical cancer and experienced radical chemo-radiotherapy.

According to the HSE, nearly 1,500 cases of cervical cancer have been notified to the cervical screening programme, CervicalCheck, since it began a decade ago.

"A cancer diagnosis is one of the most, if not the most, hard experiences a person and their family can deal with".
