Every woman who had their smear test reviewed by the UK's Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists should be granted an individual independent review of their smear screening, cytological and clinical history.
That's according to the 221+ support group after the review into 1,000 women's slides found that in around 30% of cases, it recorded a different result to the original finding.
The group says independent reviews would help to ensure concerns over past failures in CervicalCheck do not undermine future confidence in the screening programme.
221+ fully supports @LorcallWalsh in her decision to step down from CervicalCheck Steering Committee & is calling for independent individual reviews in light of concerns over the RCOG review process - FULL STATEMENT: https://t.co/5BiaTfY75Q #CervicalCheck

It has also said that it fully supports Lorraine Walsh's decision to stand down from the CervicalCheck steering committee.
Walsh stepped down from the committee due to fears over the UK reviews accuracy - a decision which 221+ says was completely justified.
That sentiment has been echoed by fellow campaigner Vicky Phelan:
A LONG Thread...
I have decided to reactivate my Twitter account for a very brief period in order to express my views on the RCOG Review process. I fully support Lorraine Walsh’s decision to step down from the Cervical Check steering committee 1/9
