Request access to the registry
Overview of the registry
The Department of Health and Social Care directed NHS Digital to carry out this work in response to recommendation 21 of the Keogh Review of the Regulation of Cosmetic Interventions.
The registry records the details of any individual who has breast implant surgery, for any reason, so they can be traced in the event of a product recall or other safety concern relating to a specific type of implant. It also allows the identification of possible trends and complications relating to specific implants.
All providers of breast implant surgery are expected to participate.
Data Provision Notices have been issued and are available.
How the registry has been developed
NHS Digital is working closely with the Department of Health and Social Care, Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), patient representatives, relevant professional bodies and other agencies to develop the BCIR.
Representatives of these groups provide clinical input, advise on content, governance and outputs via the Breast and Cosmetic Implant Registry Steering Group.
