Baroness Cumberlege’s review into Medicines and Medical Devices Safety – Alex Norris responds

Alex Norris MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, responding to Baroness Cumberlege’s publication of her review into Medicines and Medical Devices Safety, said:

“All those affected by harmful medicines and medical devices have been waiting far too long for this moment, but justice is finally near, thanks to a tireless campaigning effort.

“Baroness Cumberlege has overseen the development of an excellent report, and its recommendations can make a difference for medicines and medical device safety. It must now be followed by action.

“The Government needs to immediately apologise on behalf of the healthcare system to all the families who have been affected by Primodos, sodium valproate and pelvic mesh set up a taskforce to implement the remaining recommendations.”
