HC Deb 11 December 1997 vol 302 c675W
Ann Clwyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what provision there is in the National Health Service in Scotland for women who suffer from ruptured silicone breast implants, to have them removed. [19286]

Mr. Galbraith

Any decision to remove a silicone breast implant is a matter of clinical judgment in the context of the one-to-one relationship between doctor and patient, taking into account the individual circumstances of each patient. The National Health Service in Scotland would provide whatever treatment is judged necessary.
