England to begin registering all breast implants
December 31 , 2013
After a scandal regarding dangerous breast implants, England is going to begin registering each breast augmentation.
"The PIP implant scandal has shone a light on what is sometimes a cowboy industry where there are some murky practices," the health chief said. "What we need to do is more effectively track the quality of implants women receive and to make sure that when things go wrong with those implants, that can be acted on as quickly as possible."
The move comes after it couldn't be confirmed if some patients had been given the risky implants.
