Patient representatives say they're "emotional and disappointed" after meeting with senior health officials over the latest CervicalCheck crisis.

The CervicalCheck steering group met for the first time since it emerged 856 women had their test results delayed due to an IT problem at the US-based Quest lab.

52 of those women proved positive for the HPV virus after their re-test, with half of them being referred on for further treatment.

Following the meeting, Cervical Cancer survivor and member of the steering group, Lorraine Walsh said she was emotional and disappointed with it how it went.

Ms Walsh said:

"I'm just disappointed for the women of Ireland"

She added "We haven't got answers, so we found a little bit out today".

The steering group is now set to meet the DCU Professor Brian McCraith, the man tasked with chairing the rapid review into the IT glitch controversy.
