Contact your MP
Your local member of parliament (MP), call their offices once a month to tell them about mesh injured Australians and ask what THEY are going to do about it.
Handwritten notes or letters sent to your MP can also help. It is best to write in your own words, even if you can only manage a sentence or two, rather than a “template” that is the same.
Better impact. Better outcomes.
