IM/2021/005 - Changes to IRIC safety alerts



MHRA publishes safety information which is distributed in Scotland by IRIC. Last year, MHRA made the medical device alert (MDA) format obsolete and replaced it with a new format called a National Patient Safety Alert (NatPSA).

This format is reserved for safety concerns involving risk of death or disability. Safety concerns which involve less serious risks will be published in other formats. The most recent format introduced by MHRA is the Device Safety Information (MDSI) web page.
