A Note from the Chairperson

You are welcome to the website of the CervicalCheck Tribunal.

Having been established by the Minister for Health on the 27th day of October 2020, the Tribunal has jurisdiction to hear and determine a certain limited number of claims arising in respect of the State’s cervical screening programme. With the consent of the parties concerned, it provides an alternative legal mechanism, outside of the court process, for the hearing and determination of eligible claims. Its determinations are subject to confirmation by the High Court and parties enjoy a right of appeal.

This presentation provides a brief introduction to some of the principal features of theTribunal.

Ms Justice Ann Power
