Big Boobs Implants Fight Turns Political

Scottish campaigners affected by big breast implants continue fight for public inquiry

“We’ve been campaigning tirelessly and prepared a very strong case for an independent, transparent and comprehensive public inquiry into this scandal,” Ms Devine said.

Scottish campaigners affected by the PIP implant scandal have vowed to continue their fight for a public inquiry after their request was turned down by the Health Secretary.
Members of the PIP Implants Scotland Group hoped to convince Nicola Sturgeon to back their case during a meeting at the Scottish Parliament.
An estimated 4,000 women in scotland may have been given the implants by private companies.
The implants manufactured by French firm, Poly Implant Prothese, were filled with non-medical grade silicone intended for use in mattresses.
In total, around 47,000 British women are believed to have been given the PIP implants which have been linked to ruptures and swelling in the body.
Trisha Devine, spokeswoman for the PIP Implants Scotland  campaign group, said she is disappointed there will be no immediate Scottish inquiry.
She read a statement at Holyrood after her meeting with Ms Sturgeon, accompanied by other campaigners and Labour MSPs Jackie Baillie and Malcolm Chisholm.
“We’ve been campaigning tirelessly and prepared a very strong case for an independent, transparent and comprehensive public inquiry into this scandal,” Ms Devine said.
