RTE News reports:
RTÉ News has learned that an audit on the CervicalCheck controversy identified more than 12 women who have died.
It also found that around half of the 206 women affected were not told they may have had a delayed diagnosis and may have benefited from earlier treatment.
A serious incident management team is continuing to gather information from around 13 hospitals on the scale of the controversy.
More than 2,000 people had contacted the Health Service Executive helpline by last night.
A report on the affair is likely to be presented to the Director General of the HSE this evening.
