Update on establishment of CervicalCheck Tribunal

Given the ongoing and quickly evolving situation in relation to Covid-19 the decision has been made to delay the establishment of the CervicalCheck Tribunal.  This decision has been made in response to both the measures which were announced by the Taoiseach on the 12th March and the understanding that the intended claimants may be considered to be at risk if they were to contract the virus.


The situation will be monitored and further updates in relation to the establishment of the Tribunal will be posted on this website. Any update will also be communicated to the relevant groups through the usual channels. As soon as medical advice recommends that it would be safe and prudent to establish the Tribunal all steps necessary to do so will be taken as expeditiously as possible.

About the Tribunal

Message from the Tribunal Registrar, Ms Paula Cummins

Welcome to the CervicalCheck Tribunal website. Information which can be found on this website includes a video message which has been prepared by the Chairperson of the Tribunal, Ms Justice Mary Irvine, as well as the draft Rules of Procedure of the Tribunal and a draft Practice Direction in relation to time limits which will apply to all aspects of the determination hearing.

You will also find details of the process involved in making a claim to the Tribunal, both in relation to claims which are already the subject of proceedings before a Court and those which are not.

The website has a FAQ section which will hopefully answer most queries. However, if you have any further queries in relation to any aspect of the process please do not hesitate to contact me by email. If you would prefer to speak by telephone you can request a call back in your email and you will be contacted by a member of the Tribunal staff as soon as possible.

A person who meets the definition of an appropriate person under the CervicalCheck Tribunal Act 2019 can make a claim for compensation to the Tribunal. However, where a person (who would otherwise meet the definition of an appropriate person) has received an award (other than an award under the CervicalCheck non-disclosure ex-gratia scheme) from any court or a settlement in respect of any action arising out of any circumstances which could give rise to a claim before the Tribunal, that person is not entitled to make a claim to the Tribunal.

Further information on who is eligible to make a claim to the Tribunal can be found here.
