This week I joined MPs from across the House of Commons to launch the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on mesh. I was also elected as co-chair for the group and will be working closely with the Chair, Owen Smith MP, to ensure that the objectives are achieved.
The objectives of the group are fourfold:
• Raise profile of mesh and the plight of mesh injured women;
• Campaign to bring forward NICE guidelines for mesh in SUI;
• Campaign to secure a national audit and registry for mesh interventions; and
• Advocate for the suspension of mesh as a first line treatment until NICE guidelines are revised. Read more “Launching All Party Group on Mesh”
