All the women and families directly affected by the Cervical Check scandal will get a €2,000 payment from the Government.
Dr Gabriel Scally, who's leading the investigation into what happened at Cervical Check, has provided an update into the inquiry.
Among the recommendations are giving better information outlining that smear tests are not 100% accurate; making sure women have full access to the records of their checks; and in the event of a problem that open disclosure would take place quickly and accurately.
Health Minister Simon Harris says there will also be an immediate payment to the 209 women.
He explained: "This payment relates to addressing any financial obstacles women might encounter in having their voices heard as part of his work. It would not be a bar to further payment in due course."
Dr Scally is continuing his inquiry, with more than 20 women or family members affected having made contact with him.
He says that interviews are also continuing with 'key individuals', including officials from the Department of Health and HSE.
