Named units being able to see and treat women with mesh related problems
The following units (downlod PDF here) have agreed that they are happy to see women who have significant mesh problems following incontinence or prolapse surgery where mesh was inserted.
The following personnel have confirmed that they will comply with set criteria of discussing all patients requiring surgery at a joint meeting to help determine best treatment options. The clinical lead will be responsible for submitting data on all patients undergoing surgery onto a national database and report them to HMRA.
The clinical lead has taken responsibility for the unit. Other medical staff from the hospital may also be involved in the care under the agreement with the clinical lead. This will be a local arrangement and each unit will be able to discuss further with any patients seen in that unit.
