The independent report into an IT problem which led to over 850 women and many GPs not getting their CervicalCheck results is due to be submitted to the Health Service Executive today.

The 'Rapid Review' was commissioned after an RTÉ News report first revealed the problem on 11 July.

Minister for Health Simon Harris has said he was first briefed on the issue on the evening of 10 July, the day RTÉ News first submitted queries on the matter to his department.

The report by Professor Brian MacCraith, President of Dublin City University, was commissioned by the recently appointed new HSE chief, Paul Reid.

It will examine who knew what and when about the events at the HSE and the Department of Health.

A woman known as 'Sharon' first raised queries about her delayed test results with the department in early April.
