40,000 women have not received cervical cancer screening information – Jonathan Ashworth responds

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health and Social Care Secretary, responding to the news that more than 40,000 women in England have not received information regarding cervical cancer screening, said:

“Capita’s list of failings is a long one, but today’s news is deeply disturbing. Thousands of women will be left in anxiety and worry as a result.

“Enough is enough. Capita need to be stripped of this contact, services brought in House and a minister must come to the Commons to offer women the urgent reassurance they deserve.”
