Medical Device Alerts

Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (An executive agency of the Department of Health)

The MHRA is responsible for the regulation of medicines, medical devices and equipment used in healthcare and the investigation of harmful incidents.  They aim to prevent adverse incidents happening and, where they have already happened, to prevent them happening again.  No device should ever be considered 100% safe and constant effort is needed to reduce both the rate at which adverse incidents occur and the severity of the outcome.  Reporting incidents to the Agency provides information that may be directly responsible for preventing similar incidents from happening again.  An adverse incident is an event that causes, or has the potential to cause, unexpected or unwanted effects involving the safety of device users (including patients) or other persons.

The MHRA issue alerts from time to time and the CTA recommend that organisations sign up for the email alerting service to be kept informed of any adverse incidents that may be relevent to them.
