We anticipate that the Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review will wish to examine, among other things, the concerns that have been raised about the use of mesh, including ventral mesh rectopexy surgery. The Review is, however, independent of the Department, and such decisions are a matter for its Chair, Baroness Cumberlege.
