Responding to the reports that more than 40,000 women in England have not received information regarding cervical cancer screening after a failure to send out letters by the NHS, Liberal Democrat MP Wera Hobhouse said:
“It is outrageous that women’s health has again been compromised with the failure to send out cervical cancer screening letters.
“Only six months ago, the former Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, stood up in the Commons to apologise to women for failures to send invitations for breast cancer screening.
“It is unacceptable that these failures seem to be becoming the norm. The Liberal Democrats demand better for women’s health, much better."
