A briefing note was prepared for Health Minister Simon Harris over a week before a settlement was reached in Vicky Phelan's High Court case.
The HSE Serious Incident Management Team held a special briefing on the controversy on Monday afternoon and according to its chairperson, Patrick Lynch, the cause of these women's deaths is not known at this time. The figures came to light after terminally-ill mother Vicky Phelan settled her case. It means some 162 women did not know there might be a problem with their cancer check.
The Health Service Executive (HSE) said 162 of the 208 women affected by the CervicalCheck screening row were not told that a review had been conducted of their case or of the outcome.
He also said he first learned of the entirety of the Vicky Phelan case on the RTÉ News website last week.

Mr Harris also said he is appointing an worldwide clinical panel.

Solicitor Cian O'Carroll, who represented Ms Phelan, has said the latest revelations are "shocking" and described CervicalCheck's conduct as appalling.
"But in all the debate that is ongoing it is important that we do not lose sight of the fact that the cancer screening programme has saved the lives of many, many women".
