Government will pay for women who had breast implants on NHS to have them removed

But it said the 5% of women who had their implants on the NHS as part of breast reconstruction surgery will be able to have them removed and replaced if they are concerned, and following consultation with their doctor.
The Government said it expects private firms to offer the same deal to anxious women who also wish to have their implants removed.
A Government review ordered by Health Secretary Andrew Lansley has concluded there is no clear evidence that patients with PIP implants are at greater risk of harm than those with other implants.
Advice from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has not changed: there is still no evidence of health risks to support routine removal of the implants.
But experts behind the review concluded that anxiety is a form of health risk and recognised that many women would be anxious.
