Lothian MSP Neil Findlay has this week written to the Lord Advocate, Justice Secretary, and Chief Constable of Police Scotland to raise the possibility of criminal proceedings against two different surgical mesh manufacturers here in Scotland.

The Scottish government called for the use of mesh implants to be suspended four years ago while an independent safety review was carried out.

But about 500 women have had the controversial procedure in Scotland since then.

This week the Scottish Parliament’s Public Petitions Committee released a report stating that the use of mesh implants by the NHS should be banned across Scotland entirely.
