In an effort to help get all the women, who have been fitted with faulty silicone breast implants, free from same, the state has announced that the entire removal cost will be covered by the state.
The above announcements have come from Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Mr. Tony Holohan, who said in his statement that all the financial responsibility of the faulty breast implanted cases will be taken care by the three clinics, who used the industrial-grade gel for the purpose.
His next announcement cleared that no such relief has been promised by the Harley Medical Group, which fitted almost 1,500 women with PIP implants from the French company Poly Implant Prosthese.
"The department (of health) is not satisfied that the Harley Medical Group will fulfill their obligations in an acceptable manner", Dr. Holohan's office said in a statement. They confirmed that all the affected recipients of the Harley Medical Group will be given the necessary care via an alternative route.
The necessary funds have been promised by the National Treatment Purchase Fund (NTPF) enabling women to undergo the required surgical consultation and radiology methods if required. Also, the fund has promised to serve the implant removal costs as well.
