You may not be alone in your medical device experience

Health Issues Centre is a consumer advocacy organisation established to protect the interests of all consumers. Our previous work includes identifying the extent and severity of injuries caused to thousands of women by trans vaginal mesh implants.

We are now conducting a public consultation to identify other patterns of malfunction in medical devices and implants.

Our aim is to ensure that faulty devices are removed from the market and that consumers who have suffered injury are provided with adequate care and remedy.

Your information will be treated in strict confidence and only used to establish the prevalence of malfunction:
