Bills and Laws

Transvaginal Mesh Removal (Cost Reimbursement) (Scotland) Bill


Some people have paid private healthcare costs to have their transvaginal mesh implant removed.

This Bill would allow the Government to set up a scheme which could pay back those costs to people. This could include travel costs and hotel accommodation paid for in relation to the surgery.

The scheme could also cover other details, such as:

  • who can apply
  • how to apply
  • time limits on applying
