Review how to turn MHRA into a fully transparent, patient first regulator

Petition Details

We believe the MHRA should be reviewed. This should include its approval processes, its monitoring of safety of existing products, its transparency and accountability, and its mechanisms to ensure patient safety is prioritised over commercial interests.

Additional Information

The review should also cover how conflict of interests can be eradicated, improving the yellow card process, and limiting its funding sources. A wide range of medicines & devices approved by MHRA have caused patient harm. We believe the MHRA focuses too much on clinical trials of new medicines, rather than safety of existing ones.

Information sought through FOIs has sometimes not been provided due to commercial interests.

There is a 'revolving door' between industry & the regulator, board members have declared financial interests in the pharmaceutical industry.
