The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), has launched a 10-week public consultation on changes to how medical devices will be regulated across the UK.
This is a unique chance to share your experiences and views on medical devices, that will shape the future new regulatory framework.
We therefore invite you to the webinar aimed at patients and the wider public, to engage on this formal public consultation.
Date: Thursday 14 October 2021
Time: 10:30 until 11:30 (BST)
The MHRA is the regulator for medical devices used in the UK. Medical devices in the UK are currently regulated under the Medical Devices Regulations 2002. Following the UK’s departure from the European Union, the MHRA now has the opportunity to create a world-leading regulatory framework that prioritises patient safety while fostering innovation, including streamlining the approval of medical devices.
The scale and scope of this consultation on medical devices is unprecedented. It provides a once in a generation opportunity to make a difference to how we ensure the safety and quality of medical devices that many of us rely on, and we all benefit from.
You can find more information about the consultation online from the press release, or on the consultation page.
