Views sought on draft patient safety alerts on medical device incidents and medication errors

NHS England and the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) are working together to improve the reporting and learning in two important areas.

It is proposed to increase and improve reporting of medical devices and medication errors via an integrated reporting system and enhanced governance (control) systems.

In partnership we have drafted two Patient Safety Alerts which, before we issue, we are seeking views from healthcare professionals or anyone who has an interest in these areas.
