UK Medicines Regulator a “Serious Risk” to Patient Safety

The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on pandemic response and recovery has raised “serious patient safety concerns” about the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), along with other aspects of a system that, “far from protecting patients, continues to put them at serious risk”.

In a letter to Health Secretary Steve Brine, APPG co-chairs Esther McVey and Graham Stringer, with 26 cosignatories, highlighted the Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety (IMMDS) investigation of Primodos, sodium valproate, and pelvic mesh scandals, which found the response of the healthcare system was not sufficiently robust, speedy, or appropriate, causing some patients to suffer life-changing or fatal, avoidable harm.

MHRA at “the Tip of a Sizeable Iceberg of Failure”
Subsequent evidence “leads us to believe that serious patient safety concerns persist beyond even the findings of the IMMDS review”, the APPG signatories wrote. “The MHRA is at the heart of these far wider endemic failings,” and “those cited in this letter merely represent the tip of a sizeable iceberg of failure.”
