Subject:       Vaginal mesh surgeries



I am writing to request information related to vaginal mesh surgery statistics held by Bolton NHS Foundation Trust under the above-mentioned Act.

If possible, I would like you to provide me with the following information:

  • The number of surgeries performed using vaginal mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse or urinary incontinence for the last available fiscal year and previous years (up to 10 years in the past)
  • The total number of pelvic organ prolapse surgeries that were performed on women and men (separate statistics) between 01 April 2018 and 01 April 2019
  • The total number of patients who were recommended pelvic floor muscle training as treatment for their pelvic organ prolapse between 01 April 2018 and 01 April 2019

In terms of pelvic organs, I refer to the pelvic organs such as the bladder, uterus, vagina, bowel, and rectum.
