The new interim director of the HSE John Connaghon, has vowed those found of any wrong doing in regards to the recent CervicalCheck scandal, will be held accountable.
Mr Connaghon who replaced Tony O’Brien earlier this week, told the Public Accounts Committee that it was the HSE’s duty to get the full facts and information in order for lessons to be learned.
In a week when the committee also heard testimony from victim Vicky Phelan, Mr Connaghon said those responsible must take full responsibility and hold themselves accountable for their mistakes before disclosing their results.
Mr Connaghon’s comments, come as the health service has found itself under further scrutiny after latest findings suggest that more women could be affected by the scandal which has already seen 209 patients recieve incorrect test results.
