Thompsons Solicitors is offering free legal advice and its award winning no win no fee compensation service to those affected by breast implants manufactured by Poly Implant Prosthesis (PIP).
It is believed that around 4,000 people in Scotland could have been fitted with PIP implants through private clinics.
On 23rd December 2011 the French Government recommended that all women with implants manufactured by French company Poly Implant Prosthesis (PIP) should have them removed. The move came after the French medical device regulatory authority the AFSSAPS identified a high rupture rate of 5%.
The UK Government have said that those who have received the implants on the NHS can have them removed on the NHS and some private clinics have also offered to remove and replace the dangerous implants.
The implants, in use between 2001 and 2010, were recalled in the UK after the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA) released a medical device alert on the implants in March 2010. The recall followed similar moves from the French health authorities after they identified that the type of gel used within the PIP implants was not approved. Later studies revealed that the industrial grade gel used was the same used in mattresses instead of the medical grade required.
