In the latest article by Marion Scott of the Sunday Mail, lawyer Cameron Fyfe, who is representing 300 women suffering complications, argues that every woman in Scotland given a mesh implant can now sue the NHS even if they have not suffered complications.
A law which was devised to compensate workers exposed to asbestos, but who have not yet shown evidence of lung disease, is to be employed to protect mesh victims.
Cameron Fyfe states that there is now so much evidence to show the dreadful damage which can be caused by mesh that every woman who has undergone mesh surgery can potentially take legal action against manufacturers and the NHS. These complications sometimes take years to fully emerge and so every woman who has had a mesh implant will be distressed that these injuries may happen to them and thus may have a claim.
Campaigners are calling for the use of these meshes to be suspended.
