New national lab

(14 Aug 2020)

The HSE has made a strategic decision to develop a national cervical screening laboratory in conjunction with the Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital in Dublin.  The National Cervical Screening Laboratory will be a publicly owned and operated laboratory.  The laboratory will serve as the national base for training, education and research purposes for the National Screening Service’s CervicalCheck screening programme. 

A steering group and project team oversee and progress the project. Recruitment of key staff has commenced and a tender process for construction is under way.

During the course of this long-term laboratory building project we will continue to offer our participants accredited tests in line with national and international best practice.

Three independent reports have in the last two years confirmed that the laboratories used by CervicalCheck are up to international standards and we have the highest confidence in their ability to provide a safe and effective standard.
