Apology for women’s lives ruined by unsafe medical treatments – BBC News

The live of many women have been ruined by three separate medical treatments, because officials failed to listen to concerns about their safety and often dismissed the complaints as “women’s problems”.

An official inquiry looked at the impact of an epilepsy treatment, pelvic mesh implants and a pregnancy test no longer on the market.

The Health Secretary Matt Hancock has offered a full apology to the women affected and promised that lessons will be learned.
