Motion text

That this House expresses concern at the serious adverse effects currently suffered by thousands of women due to complications from polypropylene transvaginal mesh (TVM) procedures; and informed by both domestic and international evidence, calls on the Department of Health to immediately initiate comprehensive independent research to evaluate the safety of mesh devices, to seriously consider the suspension of TVM implants pending the completion of such research, to introduce mandatory reporting of all adverse incidents by health professionals and work with devolved governments to set up a UK mesh implant register, to introduce fully informed consent with uniformity throughout devolved health boards and clinical commissioning groups and to use the Government's offices to lobby the MHRA to reclassify TVM devices to heightened alert status to reflect ongoing concerns.
