Question ref. S6W-00790
Asked by: Jackie Baillie, Dumbarton, Scottish Labour
Date lodged: 17 June 2021


To ask the Scottish Government whether it will rule out the future use of transvaginal mesh implants.

Current status: Answered by Humza Yousaf on 2 July 2021


Yes. Further to advice from the Chief Medical Officer, the use of transvaginal mesh was halted in NHS Scotland in September 2018 and I can envisage no circumstances whatsoever in which that would change.
