The HSCIC (The Health & Social Care Information Centre) which is now known as NHS Digital developed a Breast Implant Registry on behalf of the Department of Health. The registry has been established to capture record of all breast implant surgery carried out both by the NHS and privately.
The Breast and Cosmetic Implant Registry has been designed to record the details of patients in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland who have had breast implant surgery. Details are held to that in the event of a safety concern, all patients can be traced. It will also allow the identification of any possible trends or complications that relate to specific implants.
In order to add your details to the register, The Private Clinic will require consent and consent forms will be provided to you on your surgery day. Only hospital or clinic staff with access to the registry can enter patient information.
If you are unsure if your information is on the registry, you can submit a subject access request.
