PIP Patient Information

Dear Patient,

We have added a significant amount of resources to enable us to prioritise your request for information around your personal situation and to establish whether you have in fact had PIP implants. We aim to get back to you with information within 7 days of your initial enquiry or submission of your request for that information.

Please note that the make and model of your implants will be on your original discharge document and all patients receive this. We are working through all of our enquiries as quickly as possible and appreciate your co-operation and patience.

Surgicare Medical Group’s current advice on PIP implants is the same as that of Prof Bruce Keogh, the NHS medical director who led the expert group review on PIP implants, who concluded that, “we do not think it is necessary to recommend the routine removal of these implants.”

Health Secretary Andrew Lansley also stated that the advice to PIP patients with PIP implants remains the same, and that there is no evidence to suggest routine removal.

The Department of Health’s expert group also concluded “there is no evidence that PIP implants are associated with a higher risk of breast cancer than other silicone gel implants”. “Toxicology tests on samples of filler material in both France and the UK suggested that there was no significant health risk to women who had already received the implants.”

Surgicare Medical Group are not recommending routine removal of any PIP implants unless they have ruptured. However we do recognise that many of our PIP patients who have these implants are anxious . We have been auditing our rupture rates for many years in both PIP and other implants that we have now used for several years. We have not found in our data any cause for concern, all our data is routinely reported to the MHRA.

We have collated a number of options for our PIP patients.
