The final report of the Mesh Oversight Group led by NHS England sets out the action that has been taken to improve awareness of complications, to ensure the consent process for patients is strengthened and to put in place access to additional care where needed. The Government will continue to work with the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency to ensure that the potential complications of these devices are better understood and that any necessary action is taken.
