The Member of Parliament for Eastleigh, Mims Davies, has met with representatives from the Urology Trade Association (UTA) which represent 95% of urology manufacturers and is one of the largest trade associations in the health sector.
Members of the UTA produce a range of urology products, including catheters, sheaths and stoma care products, which aid the treatment of conditions that can affect the kidney, bladder, prostate and bowel. As the biggest importers of medical devices in the country, the UTA are focusing their efforts to protect patient choice in a post-Brexit Britain
Commenting, Eastleigh MP Mims Davies said:
“Having supported constituents on a number of women’s health issues, including vaginal mesh implants, I was pleased to meet with the UTA team and hear about their work treating, helping and manufacturing products to ease the lives of patients and support them with urology care, including within our local area.
“One in six people in the UK live with a bladder and bowel issue. As the UK departs from the EU, Healthcare has become a focus of concern for many of my constituents, and it is vital that patients maintain access to the medical devices they need to stay healthy, mobile and live a good quality of life.”
