MHRA calls for medics to help improve patient safety

08 Nov 2022

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has announced a consultation on how the agency engages with healthcare professionals regarding medicines and medical devices.

The consultation will aim to improve safety surrounding the use of medicines and medical devices by ensuring medical professionals receive sufficiently accurate information and guidance from the MHRA.

Dr June Raine, MHRA chief executive, said, “All healthcare professionals want to deliver the best outcomes for patients, and we share this goal. Effective engagement and communication with healthcare professionals are therefore vital for the MHRA to support healthcare professionals and patients to make informed decisions about care and treatment.”

She continued, “I want to encourage every healthcare professional and representative organisation to respond to this consultation. Learning from your experiences and your views on what we need to improve will give us a clear direction on how to tailor our engagement most effectively.”

The consultation period closes at 11:45pm on January 18, 2023. Medical professionals can participate by responding here.
