HSE Cyber Attack - Cervical Screening Update 16.06.21

(16 Jun 2021)

Access to Healthlink, the system that connects the HSE to GPs, has been restored, and we have resumed sending results and letters to sampletakers and patients.

If your patient is waiting on their cervical screening results, they will now receive a copy of their results in the post.


  • Please be aware that it can take 8 to 10 weeks to receive results.
  • Colposcopy units and colposcopy clinics continue to operate, albeit with reduced capacity.
  • We continue to remind people that cervical screening is for people who do not have symptoms. If a patient has symptoms they should not wait for screening but should contact their GP immediately whowill arrange the appropriate follow-up care.
