Ms Phelan, who was awarded €2.5 million in a settlement against a U.S. lab last week over a false negative smear test in 2011, has said she was very upset at the revelation that that there had been 17 deaths.

HSE director general, Tony O'Brien is also facing political pressure, as Sinn Fein president Mary Lou McDonald told the media on Tuesday that he should resign or be sacked. In this regard he urged women to continue to attend for their scheduled smear tests.

Vicky Phelan, 43, from County Limerick, who has terminal cancer, was only informed of the misread test past year.

The HSE's Open Disclosure Policy 2013 was designed specifically to deal with adverse healthcare events in a transparent and open manner but it is sadly clear that it is not working and that mandatory disclosure must now be brought in.

Vicky Phelan's lawyer, Cian O'Carroll, called the conduct throughout the process appalling and said, "it is particularly disgusting when you learn of the number of people that have died".
