Cervical cancer campaigner Vicky Phelan dies age 48

Cervical cancer campaigner Vicky Phelan has died.

The mother of two died at Milford Hospice in Limerick in the early hours of this morning, surrounded by her family.

Ms. Phelan’s legal case against the HSE and a US laboratory exposed the CervicalCheck scandal in which hundreds of Irish women were given incorrect negative smear test results, with some of them only finding out much later that their results were positive.
