Dr Scally reportedly believes there are other ways to deal with the issues raised.
The scathing report is highly critical of governance and structures across the screening programme and within the HSE.
She said: "I know Vicky was due to have treatment, her life-saving treatment in Dublin, and she was trying to change that so she could be briefed by Dr Gabriel Scally".
But the 170-page report with 50 recommendations fails to name any individuals involved in the scandal.
It's reported that Dr Scally says in the report he doesn't believe a full commission of inquiry will be needed into the scandal - which the opposition disagrees with. Victims want a full public investigation.
However, speaking on RTÉ's Morning Ireland, the Minister for Health, Simon Harris, who had promised such a commission of investigation when the scandal broke earlier this year, said he may still move ahead with one.
Vicky Phelan has taken to Twitter to call it a "whitewash".
Ms Phelan has been diagnosed with terminal cancer but was not told for three years that an audit of cervical tests had revealed that abnormalities had been missed.
As the Government grappled with its latest mishandling they both received a private viewing of the report in Limerick, along with cancer survivor Lorraine Walsh. They declined to give their views last night on its findings but will give an opinion today when it is published.
The report is due to be discussed by cabinet tomorrow.
But a lack of documents from the HSE delayed his investigation and he was continuing to receive some of the 12,000 records he eventually received in recent weeks. The report is non-statutory and can not point the finger of blame at any individual. However, it makes clear that CervicalCheck, which was set up in 2008 to reduce the 90 deaths from cervical cancer annually, was beset by serious problems.
The minister said the laboratories used to read the CervicalCheck scans are safe and capable of carrying out this work, according to the report.
The Taoiseach said today that he was "appalled" that some information relating to the CervicalCheck controversy was leaked to the media, stating that the Scally Review was "not a scoop".
The false negative test result was uncovered during CervicalCheck's retrospective internal audit and was relayed to her doctor in 2016.
