Date lodged: 6 March 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how many (a) transobturator mesh tape and (b) prolapse mesh procedures have been carried out by each NHS board in each month since June 2014.

Answered by: Shona Robison 17 March 2017

The number of transobturator mesh tape and prolapse mesh procedures carried out by the NHS between June 2014 to Sep 2016 are set out in the following tables. The numbers of procedures carried out by each Health Board are not broken down by month due to the small numbers of patients involved.
