Mc Sharry clashes with HSE boss at Oireachtas Health committee

Mr O'Brien was due to leave his role in August and during yesterday's Oireachtas Health Committee, he rejected calls from Fianna Fáil TD Stephen Donnelly to step down.

The Director General (DG) of the HSE, Tony O'Brien, wishes to announce this evening (Thursday 10 May 2018) his intention to step down from his position as DG with effect from close of business tomorrow (Friday 11 May).

Mr O'Brien said he has been proud to lead the health services and the many staff who have worked tirelessly and with great dedication to provide health and social care services in a very challenging environment.

CPL said it is one of two U.S., and two Irish laboratories, that have provided Pap smear testing for the Irish cervical screening program since 2008.

Ireland's leader has apologized for a scandal over inaccurate cervical cancer screening tests and has pledged an investigation to find out what went wrong. She was diagnosed with cervical cancer three years later.

He says he didn't know about women not being told of the audits of their smear tests - and there's no way smear testing can be infallible.

Pressure further mounted on him to resign as earlier this week, a mother of five Emma Mhic Mathuna took to the airways to deliver a powerful interview on RTÉ radio about being one of the 209 women and how her cancer is terminal.
