SE­NATE IN­QUIRY

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

A Se­nate In­quiry into the transvagi­nal mesh prob­lem is call­ing on sub­mis­sions to be made by May 31.

Sen­a­tor Der­ryn Hinch has spear­headed the cam­paign for the in­quiry named the Num­ber of women in Aus­tralia who have had transvagi­nal mesh im­plants and re­lated mat­ters.

Sen­a­tor Hinch de­scribed the prob­lem as a na­tional disgrace say­ing the mesh had crip­pled thou­sand of moth­ers in Aus­tralia and over­seas.

"I be­lieve this is one of the great­est med­i­cal scan­dles and abuses of moth­ers in Aus­tralia’s his­tory,” he said.

The in­quiry re­port is due on Novem­ber 30, 2017.
