We are consulting with patients and the public…

Information for patients and the public on the following topics:

Surgical removal of a retropubic mesh sling

Surgical removal of a transobturator mesh sling or single incision mini-sling

With the support of NHS England and the Mesh Oversight Group, BSUG and BAUS are jointly developing information on Surgical removal of a retropubic mesh sling and Surgical removal of a transobturator mesh sling or single incision mini-sling. This follows an interim recommendation made by the Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review in December 2019. This information will be used to aid discussion between doctors and patients who are considering the surgical removal of mesh slings for urinary incontinence, ensuring that patients are fully informed of all options available to them and feel able to make an informed decision about their own care.

As part of the development process BSUG and BAUS is keen to consult with those for whom the information is being produced, patients and the public, to ensure the information is suitable, accessible and developed to the best standard it can be before it is finalised and published.

We would be most grateful if you would take the time to review the draft information products and submit your comments using the links below.
