UK – Medical Devices Safety Bulletin

This is a new regular bulletin from Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to inform health and care professionals of new or ongoing safety issues with medical devices. It is aimed at all parts of the health and care system in the UK.

This bulletin will replace Medical Device Alerts (MDAs) for most serious patient safety issues that do not meet the NaPSAC criteria for a National Patient Safety Alert. We are no longer issuing MDAs.

To help ensure the safety of patients, we recommend you:

  • act on any aspects in this bulletin that will affect your practice or the care you provide
  • share the safety messages with colleagues who you think need to know this information
  • provide feedback on the bulletin via this online survey so we can ensure it is as clear and effective as possible…
