Another 7,000 women with unauthorised PIP breast implants

Article by

It has just been announced that an additional 7,000 women are known to have been provided with PIP breast implants. This brings the total number of women with PIP breast implants to over 50,000.

Kevin Timms of Garden House Solicitors who has been appointed to the steering committee along with four other solicitors which shall be taking the PIP litigation forward was asked to comment on the breaking news live on Sky News today as the story aired.

He commented that there will be a Group Litigation Order which will decide the outcome of all PIP claims being made. This is being pursued by the PIP steering committee.

For those women who have concerns about their health or have only just become aware that they have received PIP breast implants, they should seek medical advice from their GP or implanting surgeon.

Furthermore, the MHRA have just announced today that there is no guarantee that PIP breast implants sold prior to 2001 did not contain unauthorised silicone gel. The MHRA have therefore recommended that all women with PIP breast implants be supported in accordance with the Department of Health’s recommendations of January 2012.
