The Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review: Our response


In July 2021, the UK government published its response to the 2020 Independent Medicine and Medical Devices Safety Review’s First Do No Harm report, led by Baroness Julia Cumberlege. The report highlighted patient stories of unacceptable harm caused by medicines and devices, alongside recommendations for the healthcare system to reflect and act upon.

Our response explains how we continue to support the DHSC in its programme of work to coordinate and lead on follow-up to the review. It also details work we have undertaken since the report’s publication.
