Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Independent Review

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN 88921, tabled on 11 September 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to Recommendation 9 of the Independent Medicines and Medical Devices safety Review, whether the Government has commenced that work; and steps he is taking to ensure that patient groups who submitted written and oral evidence to the review will all have a seat at the discussion table.

This answer is the replacement for a previous holding answer.

All recommendations of the Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review are being considered carefully.

While this report was published on 8 July, it took over two years to compile and we therefore consider it vitally important that each recommendation, including recommendation nine and plans for further patient engagement are given full consideration.
