CervicalCheck boss quits after less than a year
Minister for Health Simon Harris has come under significant pressure over delays in introducing the HPV screening test

The recently appointed head of CervicalCheck is leaving her post, less than a year after taking on the role.

Doherty’s departure from CervicalCheck comes after a tumultuous 15 months for the screening programme.
