The Medicines Health and Regulatory Authority (MHRA) has revised its guidance on reviews for patients who have undergone metal on metal implant surgery. As a result of the changes, all patients with these implants are now advised to have their blood metal level tested according to MHRA guidelines and some may require ultrasound or MRI scans.

As a result of this new guidance, Nuffield Health have contacted patients who we believe received Metal on Metal Implants at our hospitals.

If you were treated in a Nuffield Health hospital for a joint replacement and believe you received a metal on metal hip implant but have not yet been contacted by us, you can find out if you might be advised to be tested by contacting the Matron at the Nuffield Hospital you had your hip surgery. Contact details can be found here.
