Kath Sansom

Kath Sansom is the journalist who founded the Sling The Mesh campaign in 2015 to raise awareness of the irreversible and life-changing complications of polypropylene plastic mesh implants which are used to treat stress incontinence, prolapse and hernia. The campaign has been a stakeholder on NICE guidelines, prompted Parliamentary debates and given evidence to the Australian government on mesh implants. The campaign has helped bring about a hard-hitting document called First Do No Harm by Baroness Julia Cumberlege in which she slams healthcare professionals, regulators, professional bodies, the medical industry and the NHS for catastrophically failing patients.
