The use and removal of transvaginal mesh is of great importance to both public and private health services in Australia. Each state and territory is reviewing the provision of these services, and some have developed specific information resources and support services – for example, dedicated telephone information and referral services and improved coordination and designation of services to promote a more integrated means for women to access services.

The Commission is also finalising a service model framework which will describe the key elements of an optimal service for removal of transvaginal mesh. This resource will also bring together information on the services available in each jurisdiction.
