‘Robust clinical governance must surround treatment’

According to the Sunday Post of the 23rd September 2017, the former Health Minister for the Scottish Government, Alex Neil, MSP, is:

“urging the Scottish Government to stage a summit bringing together experts from around the world as the scandal of women left badly injured by the propylene implants escalates”

I am interested in the Mesh implant scandal because of my petition to the Scottish Parliament which sought consideration of a Sunshine Act for Scotland.

On the 17th May 2017 I submitted a summary as part of further consideration of on PE1517: Polypropylene Mesh Medical Devices.

Mr Neil’s call for an international summit has cross-party support in the Scottish Parliament. He also has the backing of East Renfrewshire MP, Paul Masterton, Conservative, who is campaigning at Westminster.Paul Masterton MP states:

The Interim and Final Independent Reviews on the use of Mesh implants concluded that “robust clinical governance must surround treatment”. I have argued that for this to happen the Scottish Government need to listen to the people.
