PIP Implants: The Saga Continues
It has been revealed in a recent report that the NHS hospitals have been able to help as many as 3000 women who were fitted these faulty PIP implants. In a new revelation the Health Minister Anne Milton revealed that there are many women who don’t want to get rid of their faulty implants. This means that they have been assured by tests and scans that there isn’t need for removing them.
According to recent figures by the Department of Health, it has been revealed that as many as 2860 private patients have been given the reference of the NHS hospitals by their GPs, because the clinics were either incapable of helping them, or had to be closed.
It was further added that there have been as many as 1,100 scans already carried out by women, out of which 324 were done last week.
The whole problem started when the French firm PIP implants had used cheap material in their products, such which is used for mattresses. The government was of the view that there shall be free removal of the implants give as well as care for the women who have already suffered at the hands of the faulty implants firm.
"The expert group does not believe there is enough evidence to advise women to have their implants removed. But it is right that women should be able to seek reassurance from a specialist”, said Health Minister Anne Milton.
There is need for the government and the affected women to work in relation with each other s that they are benefitted in this situation. They need to get their implants checked as soon as possible and then go to the NHS hospitals for their removal.
