Petitioner submission of 6 September 2021

PE1865/TTT: Suspend all surgical mesh and fixation devices

I would like to add the following information with regard to the attitudes of surgeons and the Cumberlege Review.

Attitudes of surgeons

The 2017 British Association of Urological Surgeons Annual Meeting held a session on Urological Challenges.

During the session, which can be viewed on Youtube, medics are heard saying they're too busy to report mesh complications, can’t work out new IT systems & evidence is low quality.

Some hospitals have recorded nothing at all on mesh adverse events, while one consultant asked why they had to log data.

Another said that with the number of mesh cases coming to court, there will be a few “nervous” gynaecologists who haven’t recorded any evidence to back up their work.

I think that this is damning of the approach that some surgeons are taking to their responsibility to report complications. If evidence isn’t being recorded, how can we be confident that decisions being made are based on the actual experience of patients, rather than the incomplete data recorded by surgeons.

The Cumberlege Review

The Cumberlege review was a very thorough investigation. It was months of evidence gathering from the baroness and her team. It's the first proper investigation into mesh and medications and I feel the recommendations should be brought into action.

The report’s recommendations weren’t made lightly. So far very little has been taken or put into practice from the review. I again feel that it is being ignored. Why get this report done and then not follow through on it?
