Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Vaginal Mesh Implants: Discussion (29 Jun 2022)

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Vaginal Mesh Implants: Discussion (29 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: Today we got a sense of the scale of the challenge, yet the figures on those who go to Cork and Dublin do not seem to reflect that. Women out there are suffering. In one of the opening statements we were told there were advertisements and so on and that 70 women came forward. I am surprised that more women are not coming forward. I do not know if that is down to a lack of confidence in...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Vaginal Mesh Implants: Discussion (29 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: Women referred to difficulties with transport to clinics. The Cork clinic serves all of Munster. We also need to examine other issues, such as the length of time people are in a clinic.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Vaginal Mesh Implants: Discussion (29 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: Mr. Kidd might give us a written reply regarding what he mentioned earlier about gynaecologists from Britain who came over for a teaching day. It seems strange that it was just one day in Cork. He might give us the background to that. I appreciate the witnesses coming in and thank the group that came in previously. I thank everyone for their involvement in this comprehensive discussion...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Vaginal Mesh Implants: Discussion (29 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: I am conscious that we are talking about another jurisdiction but this committee would have written to the Department. A specialist was coming from London to upskill many of the surgeons in Ireland but we know there was a delay to that individual coming over because of the pandemic. The last correspondence we had said that this upskilling work had gone ahead. Again, this is something the...
