About Medical Device Alerts

Medical Devices Alerts (MDA’s) are the prime means of communicating safety information to HSC organisations and the wider healthcare environment on medical devices. MDA’s are prepared by the MHRA  and are distributed nationally with the same reference, content and format

A MDA may come about as a result investigation by any of the UK administrations where the manufacturer can not demonstrate they have taken appropriate action. Alternatively they can result through other information received by the MHRA from Competent Authorities around the world.

Medical Device Alerts are distributed to the HSC Board, HSC Trusts, and Agencies for direct action and for onward transmission were appropriate in accordance with local procedures. NIAIC arranges for the distribution to Primary Care Professionals.
