PIP breast implants
20 March 2012
Following the recent publicity about breast implants, we wish to reassure our patients that at Cambridge University Hospitals we have not used any PIP implants.
The Department of Health has issued the following advice to patients who may have concerns:
- find out if you have PIP implants by checking your medical notes. You can get these free from your clinic or GP. If you had a PIP implant on the NHS, you will receive a letter.
- speak to your GP if you had your implants on the NHS, or speak to your clinic if you had them done privately.
- agree what’s best for you – get advice on whether or not you need a scan, then discuss removal with your doctor.
