Who We Are

221+ was set up in July 2018 following the significant revelations related to the CervicalCheck screening programme and the subsequent ongoing controversy.

The 221+ Group’s Steering Committee comprises  a number of patient representatives directly affected by the scandal (Vicky Phelan, Stephen Teap and Lorraine Walsh) and by a number of patient groups (the Marie Keating Foundation, the Irish Cancer Society and the Irish Patient Association), with a view to providing structured support and services for these women and their families.
