PIP breast implants: Campaigner welcomes patient register

A register of patients in England with breast and other cosmetic implants has been set up to allow them to be traced in the event of any safety concerns.

The move comes after faulty Poly Implant Prothèse (PIP) silicone breast implants were recalled in 2010, affecting thousands of women.
