Supporting individuals directly affected by failures in the CervicalCheck Screening programme.

221 is vital, particularly around peer support. The ability to connect with and take strength, advice and information from others with similar experiences of illness and the state failure is so important

Once I met other women who had gone through the same thing I did, I didn’t feel the loneliness and isolation I felt before

Our Work

We provide a support service for people directly affected by failures in the CervicalCheck Screening programme first brought to light in 2018. As part of this support, we facilitate peer support networks, workshops and informative events for members, specialist advice and signposting, and regularly communicate important updates to members in a secure way. We also facilitate patient advocacy, by involving interested members in developments in government and policy that affect the membership. We aim to push for change, accountability and action, as Vicky Phelan wished.
