Underpinning all NHRA’s work lie robust and fact-based judgements to ensure that the benefits to patients and the public justify the risks. MHRA keep watch over medicines and devices, and take any necessary action to protect the public promptly if there is a problem. MHRA aim to make as much information as possible publicly available. MHRA enable greater access to products, and the timely introduction of innovative treatments and technologies that benefit patients and the public.
