There's a call on the Health Minister to bring CervicalCheck screening back under public control in Ireland.

People Before Profit TD, Bríd Smith, is making the call in reaction to the latest scandal over a computer glitch at a US lab which meant 800 women didn't get their results.

According to The Sunday Independent, HSE chief executive, Paul Reid, was also not made aware of the issue until last week.

Deputy Smith says if Minister Harris doesn't believe in the system he needs to bring it back into the control of the health service here.

She says Simon Harris should say to the women of Ireland whether or not he has faith in the service and the labs being used.

Bríd Smith ultimately believes the service needs to be back in public control here where it would be fully accountable and under the watchful eyes of experts in this country.
