To ask the Scottish Government, further to the statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport on 30 March 2017 (Official Report, c. 57), what its response is to concerns that evidence regarding the risks arising from the commonest continence procedures was removed from the final mesh report.
Answered by: Shona Robison 28 April 2017
Chapter 5 reviews evidence relating to risk. The evidence on risk was considered together with the patient survey (chapter 3), the evidence from the routine data sources (chapter 4) and the clinicians views (chapter 6), in order that the Independent Review could reach its final conclusions. All the evidence considered is included in the Final Report.
