Why talks on the CervicalCheck tribunal have broken down – with Vicky Phelan

Play
Read more
The 221-plus group, which represents those affected by the CervicalCheck scandal, has walked away from talks with the Government on a tribunal aimed at providing the women affected with a quicker and less adversarial alternative to lengthy and confrontational court cases.

Little over a year since then-Taoiseach Leo Varadkar apologised on behalf of the state to the more than 1,000 women affected by the cervical cancer controversy, how has it come to this?

Advocate Vicky Phelan talks to Hugh and our political correspondent Jennifer Bray, about what has led to the disintegration of relations between the sides.

Later, Pat Leahy joins to discuss the Government’s highly-anticipated plans to re-open the economy for Christmas and the Dáil business committee row.

Cervical Cancer survivor Vicky Phelan didn't set out to be a national campaigner. When first diagnosed with cervical cancer in July 2014 her concerns were for those nearest and dearest to her which was her family, with that in mind her recovery was the main focus. After doing her own research she discovered a miracle drug that has kept her cancer at bay and let her live a relatively happy life despite being diagnosed with terminal cancer. Throughout the years she has watched and grieved for many women that have passed away from cervical cancer while continuously fighting for improvements and awareness of women’s health.

Vicky Phelan : Being authentic and standing up for what you believe in

Activist Vicky Phelan, is the epitome of a powerhouse. She has integrity running through every vein in her body and she fundamentally believes in the power of speaking up for what you believe in.

Last year she was thrust into public light when she made a very powerful statement on the steps of the four courts, having refused to sign a non-disclosure agreement in the settlement of her action against the HSE.

It would come to light that Vicky, along with over 220 women with cervical cancer were given false results. In many cases, their cancers could have been prevented.
Vicky through her unrelenting desire for justice uncovered the medical and political scandal of our times.

She is a founding member of the 221+ CervicalCheck Patient Support Group and is a passionate advocate for those affected.

She lives in Limerick with her husband Jim and their two children, Amelia who’s now fourteen and Darragh who’s eight.
And she's just released her memoir ‘Overcoming’.

Triggers : references to cancer, post treatment/ surgery, depression, death.

Vicky Phelan - cervical cancer campaigner

Read more

Originally from County Kilkenny in the South East of Ireland, Vicky is a Limerick based married mother of two who has been at the forefront of exposing the Cervical Check screening scandal in Ireland after being told that she had been given incorrect smear test results.

In early 2019 she settled a high profile case with no admission of liability on the part of the laboratory or the health services involved but refused to sign a non-disclosure agreement that sought to silence her. The scandal has affected hundreds of woman and many of those who have been affected have died.

This is, without doubt, one of the greatest scandals of modern Irish history and a tragic case study into truth, transparency, power and healthcare.

At the time of doing this interview with Vicky, recorded in Doonbeg, Co. Clare on the west coast of Ireland, she had just recovered from a particularly difficult period of bad health but was very much still in treatment and facing a very challenging future. Despite this she took time out to share her life story in the hope that it will lead to much-needed change in the health services and in wider society.

The first half of this interview focuses on Vicky’s early life which will give you much deeper insight into her courageous campaigning efforts in the face of huge adversity.  

Vicky really is a true beacon of love and courage as you’re about to hear in this interview.
