ACC treatment injury claims: Surgical mesh-related claim data from 1 July 2005 to 30 June 2018

Released 18/10/18

In early 2014, a private petition was sent to Parliament’s Health Select Committee, requesting that an independent inquiry be conducted regarding the safety of surgical mesh in New Zealand.

Since that time, ACC has been working closely with Medsafe, the unit at the Ministry of Health responsible for regulating the safety of medical devices, and the petitioners, Mesh Down Under, as efforts are made to improve data-capturing.
