We are reviewing our approach to how we engage and involve patients in the work of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

This consultation ran from

Consultation description

We want 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.

We also plan to do more to communicate about who we are and the results of our work.

We would like to hear from:

  • patients
  • patient group representatives
  • carers
  • healthcare professionals

By taking part you will help us identify what our priorities should be for patient engagement and involvement in the future.
