These cases are some of the most severe there can be as patients can be left with permanent damage and lifelong suffering. In some cases, the pain and problems can turn the victim’s life upside down.

The results of the pelvic mesh inquiry may come as some form of closure for women who may have been let down by the healthcare system and the manufacturers. In terms of what can be done about it, a claim for personal injury compensation can be the way to achieve some form of justice for what you have to endure.

New vaginal mesh guidelines criticised

pelvic mesh inquiry

The new vaginal mesh guidelines that have been put in place following last year’s widespread pause in the NHS have come under heavy criticism already.

All we can say is that we know just how bad it can be for the women whose vaginal mesh procedures fail. We see the impact it has on people when lives can be turned upside down, with complications leaving some women unable to walk or work ever again. We act for women who have suffered horrendous problems, and some complications simply cannot be resolved.

The 2018 NHS pause was a step in the right direction, but the continued use of mesh slings and tapes remains a serious concern.
