The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has launched a 12-week consultation on how to best engage and involve patients in the Agency’s work.
The responses will help inform the MHRA’s future engagement with patients and the public.
The MHRA wants to adopt a more systematic approach to listening to and involving patients. They want to make sure that the patient voice is more clearly heard when safety issues, concerning medicines or medical devices, are identified and in the licensing of new medicines.
The consultation will additionally look at how patients and the public would like the MHRA to communicate with them. It will also look at how patients and the public would like to communicate with the MHRA to raise concerns and how the MHRA can best respond.
The MHRA would like to hear from:
- patient group representatives
- healthcare professionals
The consultation will close at 11.45pm on Monday 7 October 2019.
