The ALLIANCE is conducting engagement work to give a voice to those with experience of complications following Transvaginal Mesh Surgery.

The ALLIANCE is undertaking independent engagement work with the purpose of building on previous engagement initiatives and to engage with the widest group possible of women who have experienced or who are experiencing complications of Transvaginal Mesh surgery.  The experiences shared will contribute and inform an engagement report submitted to the Scottish Government to apprise future options.

Pop-up Cafes 

In order to give as many people the opportunity to share their experiences and be involved in this process, we will be holding five pop-up cafes across Scotland in Aberdeen, Dumfries and Galloway, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness.

Each pop-up cafe will give people an opportunity to drop-in at a time convenient to them to find out more about the work and to talk to the ALLIANCE staff members about participating in the consultation.  In addition, there is the option to participate in a one hour focus group between 1:00 and 2:00 pm, which aims to support open, respectful discussion of your experiences.

As these are drop-in sessions, there is no need to register, however, please feel free to phone or email if you have any access requirements or questions.

We would appreciate if you would share this engagement opportunity through your personal and professional networks.  Thank you in advance for your support.
