The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is the UK regulator for medicines and medical devices.
The Agency is in the process of reviewing how it engages and involves patients in its work and wants to adopt a more systematic approach to listening to and involving patients – ensuring that the patient voice is heard when safety issues, concerning medicines or medical devices, are identified and in the licensing of new medicines.
