According to the Scotsman, the PIP Implants Scotland Campaign group has expressed its anger over the lack of action from the NHS and the Scottish government to support women affected by the PIP scandal, which came to light more than 18 months ago.
During a meeting earlier this month with Health Secretary Alex Neil, campaigners asked him to reconsider the decision to only offer women implant removal without the promise of reconstructive surgery afterwards.
The campaigners also put forward their concerns about GPs and other doctor’s not taking their problems seriously, and even making moral judgements about their decision to opt for breast implants for cosmetic reasons.
Trisha Devine, a spokeswoman for the campaign, said women are hesitant about having their implants removed without replacement because they would be left disfigured.
After the meeting, a letter was issued to NHS staff outlining the care that should be provided to women with PIP implants but the decision to not replace the implants was not reversed.
