Should the NHS cover the costs in removing PIP implants? I was thinking about this whilst listening to a debate on the radio the other day. My initial opinion was that if the clinics are still operating, they should obviously pay for rectification work. As in any other sort of retail sale, a "warranty" (lol) needs to be offered. For those people who have paid a private clinic who is no longer trading, those people paid for them, they should pay for the removal. Why should we pay for them? after all it was probably down to their own vanity in the first place. Now, listening to a few interviews I'm not so sure. One caller said that, yes, she had them done as she wanted a bigger rack. Although on the flip sideof the coin, the NHS spends millions of pounds treating self induced illness through drink, smoking and drugs. I'm sure these women wouldn't of had the operations if they could of forseen what is happening now, and what pain some of them are suffering. The only thing that is bugging me is that a lot of them are saying they can't afford the £XXXX cost of the removal surgery.....well, they found the money when they were going in!
