Consultation response: MHRA Regulation

16 December 2021

Consultation response

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) invited views on possible changes to the regulatory framework for medical devices in the United Kingdom (UK). We want to develop a future regime for medical devices which enables:

  • Improved patient and public safety;
  • Greater transparency of regulatory decision making and medical device information;
  • Close alignment with international best practice, and;
  • More flexible, responsive and proportionate regulation of medical devices.

The PHG Foundation welcomes the review and has provided a comprehensive response which can be downloaded here.

You can read our accompanying blog on the technological developments of medical devices and how regulation should keep pace here.
