Pelvic Floor Registry Implementation Group
The Scottish Government is working with the UK Government, the other devolved administrations and with NHS England in order to establish a UK-wide medical devices information system. The aim is to collect information which will allow for better quality assurance, comparison and peer review.
As an initial step, NHS Digital is developing a Pelvic Floor Registry which, on a UK-wide basis, will collect information on surgical operations for stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse including where a transvaginal mesh implant as a medical device is used.
The Scottish Government has therefore established a pilot Pelvic Floor Registry Implementation Group, which will support a short pilot in four territorial Health Boards in Scotland. The Group is a subgroup of the Transvaginal Mesh Short Life Working Group.
Information for patients concerning the Pelvic Floor Registry is available.
