    Default Harley Medical Group says it will go out of business if it has to replace implants!!

    http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standa...ant-removal.do

    The Harley Medical Group, which fitted PIP breast implants to almost 14,000 British women, has said it will not replace them free of charge.

    The private firm fitted more of the implants than any other UK cosmetic surgery firm. It follows days of delay from the company in giving clear advice to women affected by the scandal.

    The group claims replacing the banned implants would put it out of business.

    Ah diddums, if these firms do not have adequate insurance to provide help for woman who trust their word, then they should not be allowed to practice. The nhs if helping anyone have theses removed should sue the private firms with patient consent, bit like buying a telly from retailer and them saying if we refund it we will go bust when its faulty.

    My thoughts entirely, watching. I'd have thought it would be covered by insurance too, if the clinics were adequately covered.

    There's an article on the NHS website that says if women from private clinics are helped by the NHS, the authorities will do everything they can to recoup the money. It remains to be seen though.

    My best, HB

    Then they shouldn't have inserted dodgy materials in the first place! A patient places trust that the professionals have carried out adequate research into the products they are using and ensured they are fit for the purpose. That said, the CE markings would cause conflict with this - they were CE marked, weren't they?

    Hey, I wonder if that could be an angle? If woman purchased the implants, could they use the SOGAicon? Would it work?

    I think it will be difficult with the CE markings, I mean who do they puruse, the clinic, the manufacturer or the testers that gave it the CE mark?

    Looks like it will end up in court, with the clinics being Liable IMO.

    I understood that these private clinics had to have some kind of Insurance to cover situations like this.

    If not, then perhaps they should be forced to take out sufficient cover before they are allowed to practice.

    They've profited from 14,000 operations, each operation of say 3,500 thats 49m, the implants were fairly cheap. So thats a lot of profit.

    They will carry insurance either as the company or the individual surgeons, in the form of professional indemnity ( usualy up to 5mill for each claim )
    They would not be allowed to practice without it.
    So the claimant could sue the individual surgeons as well the practice.
